Edinburgh International Festival

and Edinburgh Fringe

EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL AND EDINBURGH FRINGE SOCIETY

The Edinburgh International festival was established in 1947 as a cultural event to bring together audiences and artists from around the world.

High Street Edinburgh Festival

With the start of 2021 brings the 74th anniversary of the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe. The International Festival started in 1947 and a number of uninvited groups came along to Edinburgh and performed around the fringes of the official International Festival and year after year the uninvited returned and in 1958 the Festival Fringe Society was born. 2020 was the first year the festival was cancelled.

Today, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society is a registered charity,

   

   The Festival Fringe has three core objectives:

1 providing support, advice and encouragement to all the amazing artists, producers and    venues who create the Fringe each year, from help with choosing a venue or writing a    

   press release, to advice on touring, free access to rehearsal space, and professional  

  development activities and events

 

2 assisting the audiences who come to Edinburgh by helping you navigate what’s on offer    with comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date information and ticketing

 

3 promoting this wonderful and unique festival to the rest of the world.
