"Fringe-in-a-Day"

On Thursday, 31st July, we shall be holding our 4th annual "Fringe-in-a-Day" event, from 2.30pm until 11.00pm. Absolutely the best £5-worth you'll get in the Fringe, with the opportunity to see and hear extracts from nearly two dozen Fringe shows, before they go public. The £5 entry fee covers the whole day, so you may come and go as you please. Food and refreshments will be available all day. 

"Lunch with the Literati" - a Scottish Arts Club Festival Fringe First!

Between Sunday 3rd, and Thursday 7th August, the Club is hosting a Fringe show, devised, written and performed by Club members Professor David Purdie, David Ingram and Cameron Goodall, who will present  a series of five encounters with Scotland's greatest masters of prose and poetry - James Boswell, Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and Arthur Conan Doyle. Each day of the series will be devoted to one author, in that order, with biography by David Purdie, readings from their works by David Ingram, and songs, either by them or about them, performed by  Cameron Goodall. Buffet lunches will be available after every performance, in the Dining Room. This is an official Fringe event, so booking can be done only through the Fringe Box Office. Tickets are £12, concessions £10. Full details can be found at www.edfringe.com. (Note: lunch is not included in the ticket price.)

Club members only - buy a ticket for each of the five performances at the special price of £48 (£40 conc.) Please book through the Club by 27th July for this offer.

4th Annual "Fringe-in-a-Day"

This event has now firmly established itself as one of the "must-haves" of the Fringe. Throughout the day, over twenty groups and companies perform extracts from their shows in the Dining Room, Clubroom and Studio, providing members and their guests with a unique insight into the Fringe programme. The small admission charge of £5 covers the whole day (so you may come and go as you please), and is, without doubt, the best value anywhere in the Fringe! Fringe companies are queuing up for slots in the programme, so come and support them - and the Club - and have a fabulous day's entertainment, to boot!
