Girdy and Birdy have been enjoying Barburrito’s namesake burritos, and new menu. Barburrito on Forrest Road has become a semi-regular haunt – and were an absolute lifesaver during Fringe!
Join in the fun with festivals in Edinburgh
During the month of August, Edinburgh is home to some of the biggest and most renowned festivals in the world; Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, and Edinburgh Book Festival.
Tourists flock from around the world to attend some of the most prestigious, weird, whacky and exciting events you'll find. There are performers on the streets, and almost every single pub and club is turned into a venue for the Fringe. We're big fans, but it can also feel like a lot when you haven't experienced it before.
Luckily, there are handy brochures and all the information you'll need is online - from high-ticket, exclusive and limited-run shows, to free Fringe shows where you can just turn up on the night, and only pay what you feel like. There's something for everyone, and we're here to cover as much of it as humanly possible!

Having seen Linus Karp in Diana: The Untold and Untrue Story and it being my absolute favourite thing I’d seen at the Fringe this year, I swiftly booked myself into this, his other show.

Paddy starts weak but finds his pace with witty commentary on living with strangers, property, trauma, Hitler, and more. He has the energy, confidence, and skills to entertain crowds.
Tutu is a therapeutic experience for anyone who feels confined by expectations. The show seamlessly blends slapstick comedy and philosophical insights, achieving its ambitious goals with flying colours.
I didn’t really know what to expect from Shamilton! but being a fan of the musical it’s (loosely) inspired by, I knew that I had a media pass and I was not going to waste my shot to go and see this thing.
If you’ve been following Edinburgh Reviews during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year, you’ll have noticed we’ve been publishing a lot of coverage. It’s not only the first year we’ve been media accredited, it’s also the first year we’ve had a fancy new logo (designed by Birdy) to show off, and the first year we’ve […]
