Tam's Tall Tales

- The Booming Fringe

Entrance to Edinburgh Festival Fringe Ticket Office

The Booming Fringe
The Edinburgh Fringe always looks as if it is going 19 to the dozen, but people are reckoning that this year's figures are particularly healthy. Sales are reported by the operators of some venues to be up by about a third on last year.

This is despite the fact that the event is going head-to-head with the Edinburgh International Festival for the first time in almost two decades.

Rather than drawing Fringe audiences away, the general consensus has been that the Fringe has benefited from the realignment of the two events for the first time since 1997.

I have been busy videoing some of the shows' performers as they did their thing on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. The results can be seen here: YouTube - Scots Cam.

Please give me whatever feedback comes to mind via tamfromrampant@gmail.com.
