Firstly apologies for the lack of blogging this week, we have been busy packing and preparing for the fringe! Today we have a pick of the best free fringe shows and the venues you can find them in. The free fringe is a brilliant part of the festival as it allows you to see so many excellent shows free of charge! And they are in some lovely little venues all around the city such as book shops, bars and pubs! We hope you like this small selection we have picked out for you. Don't forget to check out more shows on the free fringe here
