Welcome To Edinburgh Fringe 2011!
It's here! Finally, the 11 months of waiting since the last one ended, the Festival is back! This year we have some new (controversial) venues, Assembly has been forced out of the Assembly Hall on George Street due to renovations lasting 1.5 years and so they are taking up most of George Square (where the Spigeltent has been for several years, or if you prefer, the main square of Edinburgh University). Pleasance has a new venue - Beneath, which is a few metres along from the Cabaret. Finally I have a new gig writing reviews for another site, which be reprised here after a period of exclusivity, but I can't talk about that top secret new gig until next week...! Four shows kick us off tonight!
