The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is packed with all sort of artists and a huge range of shows covering anything from comedy, theatre, dance, cabaret, music, children’s shows, exhibitions and much more.
“To me, it’s a proper cultural well, and you can drink from it. I go see young women’s writing, see what they’re speaking of. Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and I won the first Perrier Award (now the Edinburgh Comedy Awards). We went to the festival every year and played sketch comedy, and it’s where the three of us cut our teeth. We learned a lot. And I’m still learning” she said.
