Did the last year just fly past you in a whiz? For many of us it has and after a year, here in Edinburgh, it is now upon us again – but we are not complaining! Set to be fun packed, creative and cultured filled with plenty of belly aching laughs, we are happy to welcome the Edinburgh Festivals of 2015!
So, what is on and not to be missed at this year’s Edinburgh festivals? Let’s take a look…
The Edinburgh Fringe makes a great day out for all and is definitely something for the Bucket List. Come and see the biggest arts festival in the world this August as thousands of performers ad entertainers take to the streets, bars and theatres of Edinburgh to entertain the masses. It encompasses the whole creative world of dance, cabaret, kids shows, exhibitions, comedy and much more!
Dragon is a performance aimed towards adults, teenagers and kids with rich imaginations. It follows the story of a boy named Tommy who has struggled since the death of his mother. He awakens one night, looks out the window and comes face to face with a dragon. The story is depicted through music and puppetry and without words. It is also 100% accessible for the deaf and hard of hearing.
