Edinburgh Fringe

WGGB at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016

The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain continues its presence at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which runs from 5-29 August 2016.

The world’s largest arts festival, established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, showcases a wide range of performing arts, and includes cabaret, children’s shows, comedy, dance, physical theatre and circus, events, exhibitions, music, musicals and opera, spoken word and theatre.

In addition, events along the Royal Mile during the Festival represent the largest street fair of its kind in the world.

Entry to the Fringe does not involve a selection committee, and so it often showcases experimental works that wouldn’t make it into other festivals.

The Scottish branch of WGGB has a stand at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Participants Fair on 22 August 2016, 11am-5pm at Fringe Central @ Infirmary Street, Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, High School Yards, Edinburgh EH1 1LZ.

This will be the fifth year running we’ve had a stand at the fair.

You can find out full details of the festival on the official Fringe website.
