End of the Edinburgh Festival and Festival Fringe 2015

The world famous Edinburgh Festival has now drawn to a close. With 50,459 performances of 3,314 shows in 313 venues it has been crazy, millions of people flew in from across the world and descended upon the royal mile. I've had the good fortune to meet many interesting folks from all walks of life and it's been a crazy time overall.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as usual takes a large number of participants every year and this year was no different. The funniest joke of The Fringe has, yet again, gone to Tim Vine for this hilarious one liner: "I decided to sell my Hoover...well it was just collecting dust.". He is the first person to win this award for a second time in a row. 

Many other awards have been won, hundreds of free shows have been performed and 14 new fringe venues were created. All in all it's been a crazy August and it'll all happen again next year. We look forward to seeing you guys there.
