Every year, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society goes on the road to share information about how artists around the world can take part and make the most of all the opportunities on offer.

EdFringe explains on its website that the Society is the organisation that underpins the Edinburgh Festival Fringe:

The founding principle at the heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – to be an open-access arts event that accommodates anyone with a story to tell and a venue willing to host them – still regulates the work of the Society today. No vetting takes place, and the programme is shaped by the very initiative and vision of performers willing to showcase their work in Edinburgh.

The Fringe Society will be presenting How to do a Show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringeas part of the National Arts Festival on Tuesday 7 July at 10am in the Artists’ Lounge at the Monument Restaurant – and all National Arts Festival artists are invited to join the discussion. Hear all about the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, how to participate and the professional development opportunities presented by taking part in the largest arts festival in the world. There is no charge.

The workshop will be presented by Kath Mainland , chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, and Rachel Sanger, head of participant services, Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society.

“We will be in town from the 6-9th July,” says Sanger. “If you are not able to make the event, or would just like a one-to-one meeting for some more detailed advice, please drop a line to and we will be happy to find time for a coffee.”
