Entertainment in a car park below Edinburgh Castle? Sure, why not. There have certainly been stranger venues that have popped up in the Fringe’s long history, but this one is pretty special.
MultiStory is a collaboration between Edinburgh Fringe stalwarts Gilded Balloon, ZOO, Traverse and Dance Base, with comedy, theatre, dance, family, music and poetry all on the programme so far. This new festival hub will be taking over the NCP Castle Terrace Car Park from August 6 to 30 and will provide open-air performances as well as local food and drink stalls to keep you fed and watered.
There are already too many amazing-sounding shows on the schedule to mention, with more to be announced, but we’d recommend checking out Alice Rabbit’s Aye-Cons (which brings together the best of Scottish drag), comedy from Leah MacRae and Jason Byrne, and Welsh new writing company Dirty Protest Theatre’s Double Drop.
