Scotland is usually associated with big, hairy, bare-balled men in checkered skirts, tooting on their bagpipes whilst refueling on shortbread and haggis. Thankfully it has more to offer than this – the loch ness (and it’s supposed monster), the beautiful countryside, the castle, oh, and Fringe Festival, the biggest arts festival the world has ever seen!
For three weeks in August Scotland’s kilted capital, Edinburgh, goes loopy for culture and hosts the Edinburgh Fringe. Thousands of artists perform a tonne of theatrical shows, comedy shows, dances, physical theatre shows, musicals, operas, music showcases, and set up exhibitions and events. You can take in a tap show, peruse a pantomime, oggle an oboe-player, chew on some Chaucer, muse at Monet and gape at the endless options at this Gargantuan festival.
For the second year in a row, we here at Stoke have decided to put our cultural caps on and go and ingest the arts (and other hedonistic substances) for 4 days and 3 nights. We’ll stay at our groovy hostel where we can pre-game and get cheap drinks from the bar, we’ll take you on a stroll through the city to soak in the history and then we’ll visit the pubs to try local delicacies like black pudding and ale. We’ll also some shapes on any local dance floor we find. All for only 180€ – even a Scot couldn’t say Nay to that!
Let’s skull some Scotch whiskey, down some Drambuie (Scottish Gaelic for ‘the drink that satisfies’) and cultivate some creative catharsis at the Fringe.
Be there or be a saggy bagpipe!
