Edinburgh Festival Fringe
The Fringe began in 1947 when eight theatre companies turned up uninvited to perform at the inaugural Edinburgh International Festival. The companies were refused entry to the programme but decided to perform on the ‘fringe’ of the Festival anyway. The Fringe has remained true to the open access principle that permits anyone with a story to tell and a venue willing to host them to participate. People travel from all over the word to take part in the Fringe, creating an international melting pot of culture and art in Scotland’s capital city every year. Last year’s programme featured participants from almost 60 countries performing over 3,500 shows.
