Forest Fringe 2016

ForestFringe16

Forest Fringe 11th - 20th August

Forest Fringe celebrate their 10th year at the Edinburgh Festival with an exciting programme of experimental art and performance.

It began in 2007 as a totally independent, not-for-profit space in the midst of the Edinburgh Festival. It sought to build a community around this space in which experimentation and adventure were cherished and supported. A space that offered artists and audiences alike a different kind of opportunity – the chance to come together collectively, contributing their time and energy to make exciting, improbable, spectacular things happen. The kind of things that none of us could have achieved individually.
