The most vivacious and exciting arts festival on the planet, The Edinburgh Fringe is a place like no other. More than tripling the Scottish capital’s population and brining performers, directors, journalists and audience members together in one place for twenty-five days of the year is a remarkable spectacle to witness first hand. From full blown musicals to small scale poetry readings the fringe really does have it all. However, amongst all the hubbub and excitement an event like this brings, there are a massive number of students who, every year for whatever reason, make their way up to this cultural bubble and begin their journey as performance makers and theatre connoisseurs. This year was certainly no different with many having travelled hundreds of miles to show off their productions to the paying festival goer…with one of them being me.
