FRINGE CIRCUS – Attic – Tandanya – 5K


Superior circus, delivering a shot in the arm to a genre that is otherwise risking a rapid death wallowing in its own self-indulgences – and all home grown. The best coin that can be spent on circus this Fringe! 5K

This is masterful theatre and as good as any you will see. 5K

FRINGE CABARET – Blanc de Blanc – Garden – 4K


At 100 minutes, Blanc de Blanc is anything but plain and if you have the coin a great night’s entertainment is assured. Just go with an open mind and maybe leave the kids at home. 4K
