The Edinburgh Festival

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and is a beautiful, historical city on the east coast of Britain. Every August it has one of the biggest international arts festivals in the world, with music, theatre, opera and dance. As well as the main festival, there is also a secondary festival called ‘The Fringe’ which is a showcase for performing arts, especially theatre and comedy.

Every year thousands of performers present shows for every taste. Some are big names in the world of entertainment but others are unknown artists hoping to build their careers. The festival has something for everyone including circus acts, cabaret, children’s shows, musicals and poetry. As you can imagine, if you want to book a hotel room in Edinburgh in August, you need to do it well in advance.
