Edinburgh and the Lothians Nightlife



Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Edinburgh Festival Fringe Review

While the world's largest fringe festival is going on, most of the city center becomes one huge performance area, with fire eaters, sword swallowers, unicyclists, jugglers, string quartets, jazz groups, stand-up comics, and magicians all thronging into High Street and Princes Street. Every available performance space—church halls, community centers, parks, sports fields, putting greens, and nightclubs—is utilized for every kind of event, with something for all tastes. Many events are free, while others cost £2 to £15. During festival time—roughly the same as the Edinburgh International Festival—it's possible to arrange your own entertainment program from morning to midnight.
