Fringe news: new venue and programme info
This article is from 2011.
Even for Fringe regulars the idea of cherry-picking from the whopping 41,689 performances and 2,542 shows on this year’s festival line-up can seem daunting. Worry not, help is at hand, as next issue we bring you dozens of previews, top tips and much, much more in the first of our festival issues. In the meantime, we’re rather excited by a few newbie ventures on this year’s scene. Leith gets ready to flex its muscles with Leith on the Fringe (LOTF), at Out of the Blue Drill Hall. Expect music, cabaret, dance, theatre, film, talks and more. Their plentiful programme can be found behind their link, but we’re particularly excited aerial theatre show, Peter Pan, comic monologue Winners Wear Crowns, as well as their staging of Peter Arnott’s The Inquisitor.
Back in town, the Bedlam Theatre has announced that in addition to their usual neo-gothic church residence, they will also be launching Bedlam Chambers a few minutes’ walk away. Across town, keep ‘em peeled for the China Fringe Festival, running from 5—7 Aug at the Usher Hall, the highlight of which is undoubtedly multimedia musical Qing Cheng.
