I'm at the Fringe festival as I write this post on the morning that it's going out to readers. It's my final day, and as soon as I hit publish, I'll be walking over to see Mario The Maker's show at 11:00 (he was brilliant at Blackpool this year), and then it's off to the airport to head off.

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is an annual month-long festival packed with comedy, circus, theatre, music and too much magic. Every pub, classroom, office and gym across the city transforms into a makeshift venue for thousands of shows and hundreds of thousands of eager audiences. 856,541 tickets were sold at the festival in 2019.
