Help On Hand For Getting To The Fringe

Would-be stand up comedians or producers who dream of taking a show to the UKs biggest arts festival can find out how to do it at a free talk this weekend.

The organisers of the Edinburgh Fringe are visiting Warwick Arts Centre on Saturday at 2pm to tell people how to make it at the show.

Last year six acts from Coventry and 66 from the Midlands appeared at the three-week festival, and organisers are hoping to encourage more to make the trip.

Experts will be on hand to meet budding performers and talk through the hurdles - such as finding a venue and organising publicity.

The festival runs from 5 27 August. Talks are also being held in Brighton, London, Manchester and Cambridge.

Fringe Director Paul Gudgin said:

"With Fringe hits like the League of Gentlemen and the Fast Show becoming TV comedy favourites, and with rising stars like Billy Elliott's Jamie Bell boasting their beginnings at the Fringe, people sit up and take notice of the fact that Edinburgh is the place to make their debut.

He added that the Fringe is a completely open festival, in which anyone can take part. More information by visitng the talk, or by calling on 0131 226 5257 or at
