Boasting over 50,000 performances in over 300 venues, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe will once again be the talk of the arts world this summer. For three weeks in August (4–28 2017), the Scottish capital becomes home to comedy giants, serious thespians, hilarious first-timers - and a bunch of genuine weirdos - all putting on shows left, right and centre. So where to start? Cut to the chase with our pick of tickets to fight for at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017, plus the Edinburgh International Festival. 

Or just stay put in London

would like to recommend anyone going to the festival goes to see The Revlon Girl at Assembly Roxy. A play that took Wales by storm last year about a group of bereaved mothers after the Aberfan disaster. A story just as relevant today. A story of hope. You will laugh you will cry and you certainly won't be disappointed.
