The Fringe story began in 1947, when the Edinburgh International Festival was launched. It was seen as a post-war initiative to re-unite Europe through culture, and was so successful that it inspired more performers than there was room for. Edinburgh is one of the UK's most remarkable cities, which is what makes it such a unique backdrop for the world's largest arts festival; probably contributing to its phenomenal success. In fact, Edinburgh doubles in population in August teeming with people from all across the globe wanting some excitement.
While the Fringe may be about discovering new acts, new writing, and the raw talent of tomorrow's stars, it is also a place where fading stars come to shine a little brighter and household names present themselves in new guises. And, the performances don't end with the thousands of events in the main programme. For every day of the Fringe the Royal Mile is converted into one massive Street Stage hosting every type of Fringe performance. Street artists doing everything from tightrope walking, juggling and fire eating enrapture the ever-present crowds, as do Fringe performers, who take to the streets to perform highlights from their show. The Fringe has come a long way since its organisational beginnings in a disused pub with a leaky roof just off the Royal Mile!
