A little information about Fringe history...

The Edinburgh International Festival was launched in 1947 as a post-war initiative to re-unite Europe through culture. The Festival proved to be so successful that it inspired more performers than there was room for, eight theater companies turned up uninvited with the aim to take advantage of the large theater crowds and showcase their own, more alternative, theater. It got its name in the following year (1948) after Robert Kemp, a Scottish playwright and journalist, wrote during the second Edinburgh International Festival:‘Round the fringe of official Festival drama, there seems to be more private enterprise than before …I am afraid some of us are not going to be at home during the evenings!’. Since this time many different versions of the Fringe Festival have proliferated around the globe and have flourished by showcasing the many styles of creative arts.
