My time in Edinburgh takes place during the Fringe Festival and I’m wondering if anyone here has taken part in the events, activities and maybe could give me some pointers as this will be my first time in the city and experiencing the festival. I didn’t start out planning to take part. My initial idea to visit was to see the Military Tatoo (have tickets for 8/27). I have bookmarked the fringe festival website and perused some of the walks and various entertainment on offer, other than the street entertainers. Some I am interested in are: Ben Hart Wonder magic and comedy, Bette Midler tribute, Underbelly and Circa Circus, and James Bond musical tribute. Do you have some thoughts on navigating my time and or do you have any favorite entertainers to convince me to see/enjoy?
The fringe will not be my focus necessarily because I do want to visit the castle and possibly the botanical garden. Timing: 8/26-30. I leave for Inverness in the afternoon of 8/30. Thanks for your thoughts
