TO THE FREE EDINBURGH
Sadly the 2016 Free Festival is now
over, but we'll be back in August 2017!
website now to see what was on at the 2016
Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which ran from August the 4th to 28th
with four extra days of the 'Fringe for
Bairns' - our children's
Fringe Festival from July
31st to August 3rd (and with children's shows
continuing right through the Fringe).
We had some new
exciting venues for you to choose from, and a
another big selection of the very best free show
- with a the usual massive comedy selection,
along with three brand new 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!
hope to follow the success of 2016 in 2017, our
shows and performers won or where nominated for numerous
awards, an amazing recognition of our programming. We
will start the application process for shows for the 2017
Fringe in December.
We had a hugely
critically acclaimed Fringe last, with a
huge bucket-load of five-star reviewed shows and
even more four star reviewed shows - which
proves 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 tool on
the left of this page to see what was on in 2016,
and we hope to see you in Edinburgh through the
Fringe month of August again next year! Our
programme for August 2017 will be live in May
The Free Festival costs a lot of money...
this money is recouped through sponsorship,
advertising and our comedy courses... If you would
