Dep Arts do the Edinburgh Fringe

The price of a train has soared, the pubs are overcrowded with teckies, its now impossible to find somewhere to rest your head for less than £80 and your back pockets are filled with flyers, badges, business cards and freebies.

There’s a distinct smell of ‘newbie’ in the air and, for the capital of Scotland, it’s a novelty to hear the accent.

This all can only mean one thing. The Fringe is here.

Who would we be not to jump on the Royal Mile mania? This year we have an almighty SEVEN shows at the world’s largest performing arts festival – and the bags under our eyes to prove it.
