Monday Blog: A Visual Taster – Edinburgh International Festival
This is a continuation of an idea that I began on May 6th, which featured Deacon House Café, a great place to stop for a coffee before buying your tickets for shows.
Every August I head up to Edinburgh for The Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe. I just love all the craziness that seems to accompany the city at this time of year. So I thought I’d share with you some of my photos from last year’s festival to put you in the mood for attending this year, or if you live too far away, here’s a little taster for you to enjoy!
Fancy a bit of robot fun?
Look, you can even get your photo taken with him.
Or maybe you’d rather be plastered in a pile of leaflets? That’s one way to get much needed attention! Hope this hard working young man’s work contract includes a tea break, and the odd toilet stop, poor chap. Charlie Chaplin’s smiling down on everyone, he’s ok, he’s got top billing.
If all else fails, wear black, collapse onto the road and stay there, just hope and pray that nobody trips on you as they go pass! Luckily this is a pedestrianized area, no cars, lorries, or buses, thank heavens. The lengths that these performers will go to in order to get their show noticed.
Have you been to The Edinburgh International Festival? Have you performed there? Do let me know I’d love to hear your stories.
