Theatre Bristol Bulletin: 29th July 2016 (the Edinburgh edition)

It’s nice in the sun isn’t it? After quite a long wait for a tiny bit of sun Bristol has erupted with a full on heatwave and some pretty impressive fluffy clouds and blue skies…So it must be time to head north to one of the UK’s windiest cities and sit indoors in the dark. Yep. Yep indeedy, that’s right, it’s nearly August and that of course means Edinburgh.


So as the world (ok, maybe just the theatre world) turns it’s attention to the behemoth that is the Edinburgh Fringe we at TB towers give you a round up of all things Edinburgh; what to do, who to see and most importantly what to eat.

If you’ve never been to the festival before why not start by reading Ross Willis’s Showcase article. Ross will be up at the fringe keeping an eye out for Bristol artists, reporting back on the shows, the gossip and the worst ‘wacky comedy costume’ worn by someone flyering on the Royal mile. Also be sure to check out Aunty Lyn’s handy round up of what not to miss.


If you’re up at the festival and feel a craving to get your Bristol art fill then fear not because there’s a horde of excellent Bristol artists and companies taking work up to the fringe this year. You can see yours truly at Forest Fringe alongside Action Hero and Dan Canham. Ferment are bringing a whole cohort including Racheal Clerke and Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet And they’ll be rubbing shoulders with Tremelo Theatre and Inspector Sands who are also hanging about town. We’ve made a list of all the FAB artists’s going this year and it’s already pretty long but if you’re not on it then email

And if you are one of those horde of Bristol lovelies working at the festival this year then why not joinnuts our Bristol Artists going to Edinburgh Facebook page. On the page you can try to blag a lift, help promote each others shows and most of
all arrange late night pints so you don’t get lonely!
