Fringe Fever

May 13 at 8:30 pm

It’s Fringe Fever at funseek! After atteding the mother of all Fringe Festivals, , the largest arts festval in the world, we can’t get enough! The annual festival takes places annually for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city. What exactly is a Fringe Festival you ask?

According to the Edinburgh Festival site, the history of Fringe Festivals date back to 1947, “when eight theatre groups turned up uninvited to perform at the (then newly formed) Edinburgh International Festival, an initiative created to celebrate and enrich European cultural life in the wake of the Second World War. Not being part of the official programme of the International festival didn’t stop these performers – they just went ahead and staged their shows anyway. Year on year more and more performers followed their example and in 1958 the Festival Fringe Society was created in response to the success of this growing trend.”
