Edinburgh Fringe 2017

My new blog has been on something of a hiatus in the last month due to the biggest arts festival in the World being in town! As well as writing my own personal blog I write reviews for an online arts publication called The Wee Review and during the Fringe things go a bit crazy as we try to review as much as we can over the course of August. Last year I managed 26 reviews and so I was determined to meet the magic 30 as a reviewing figure this year. Here’s what I saw, the star ratings I gave and what I learnt during this year’s fabulous Fringe:

So I did it! I made my target of 30 reviews and along the way had a lot of fun. I got to see my little brother perform in the Fringe for the first time and pushed myself to do things and see things that a year ago I would never have done. I’m still on a journey but August went a long way to helping me keep going; from the thought-provoking subjects raised by the acts and the challenges we face in the everyday. Thank you Edinburgh Fringe for yet more great memories.
