The city streets of Scotland’s capital is preparing for the mother of all festivals next month.
Edinburgh Fringe is back and this year it is celebrating 70 years of artistic excellence in the heart of this beautiful city.
Talented artists from across the globe will be making their way to the festival that strives to be open and accessible to all.
The story of Edinburgh Fringe is one of defiance and inclusivity - a characteristic that still runs deep in its identity to this day.
The festival began in 1947 when eight theatre companies arrived to perform uninvited at the first ever Edinburgh International Festival.
