It’s July, and with just over four weeks till the 68th Edinburgh Fringe Festival, one of my favourite times of the year, and a wonderous stramash of art, culture and comedy, all coming together in a month-long Festival of fun.
As it’s a huge and often expensive affair, many people avoid the Fringe because they think it’s cost prohibitive, or they say “There’s nothing good on”. Now both of these statements aren’t quite right. This year there are over 700 free shows at the Fringe. So you should go see them!
Longtime readers of my blog, and followers of mine on twitter, will no doubt know that for the last several years I’ve made up a handy wee spreadsheet with all of the Free Fringe shows on it, sortable by catagory, and with dates and showtimes all clearly marked up. It’s the same exact system I’ve used for a decade, to plan out my own schedule for reviews for British Theatre Guide. Essentially what I needed, was an easy system where I could look at each date of the festival and sort the shows out by their showtime. After that it’s just a case of picking what order to watch them in!
