TO THE 2017 FREE EDINBURGH
We're back and raring to go! Our programme of
shows for 2017 is now
Aug 3rd to 27th this year,
with the Kids Festival shows starting on July
30th. This year we have a record-breaking 400 shows at our venues,
and more venues than ever!
We have some exciting
new venues for you to choose from,
including the return of the Counting House, and a
another big selection of the very best free shows...
There is the usual massive comedy selection,
along with four music stages, some
fantastic cabaret, theatre, children's shows,
spoken word a walking tour and some busking. As
always there was so much to choose from!
our 14th year in Edinburgh, and we
hope to follow the successes from previous years where our
shows and performers won or where nominated for numerous
awards. This is an amazing recognition of our
programming, and we have so much for you to look
forward to this time around - so use the search
options on the left to discover the gems that
are in our programme!
We had a hugely
critically acclaimed Fringe last year, with a
massive bucket-load of five-star reviewed shows and
even more four star reviewed shows - which
proves that our free shows are a sign of top quality
Fringe shows, while we let performers and
audiences experience the freedom of the Fringe,
with a chance to experiment and enjoy. Just
what the Fringe should be!
Do check out our
programme, using the calendar or search tools on
the left of this page to see what was is on in 2017,
and we hope to see you in Edinburgh through the
Fringe month of August again!
And Lucky Clucky, our chicken mascot has got a
new job - he's been elected to become
the Fringe's President
Cluck - we hope he'll guide you through
the fun and games of another crazy Edinburgh
Fringe with all of our fabulous free shows!
The Free Festival costs a lot of money...
this money is recouped through sponsorship,
advertising and our comedy courses... If you would
