Edinburgh Fringe Festival
The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland began in 1947 as a post-war initiative to re-unite Europe through culture, with a number of distinguished musicians from the war-ravaged countries of the continent invited to perform. Aware there would be a good crowd and focused press interest; six Scottish and two English theatre companies decided to turn up uninvited and fend for themselves. The next year a critic dubbed this gatecrashers’ enterprise “the fringe of the official festival drama”, and the name and the spirit of the Fringe was born.
