Regular Events

Every August the city is filled with artists, comedians, music ensembles, theatre companies from around the world. Every other building seems turned into a venue for the gigs and shows that run every day, from morning until night.

The streets around the city centre, especially the Royal Mile, are filled with stalls and free street entertainment.

The Fringe and Festival is an amazing experience. Just ask any Edinburgh native!
