The Culture Studio is soaking up the sunshine at the largest annual cultural festival in the world on Monday, and our very own queen of culture Janice Forsyth is exchanging her wee studio for a big tent packed with festival-goers to give us a tiny flavour of what's on offer this year, with guests including comedian, novelist and television presenter David Baddiel, who's talking about bringing his first standup show in 16 years, Fame: Not the Musical, to the Fringe, we'll be joined by David Beckham, David Cameron and Prince William (or at least actors playing them) who are The Three Lions (see what we did there) in the first Fringe play from actor and playwright William Gaminara (who you may know as Professor Leo Dalton from Silent Witness).

We'll have music and conversation from Carole Kidd, South African a cappella trio The Soil, and we'll get a taster of Shawshank Redemption, which has been adapted for the stage for the first time by comedian Owen O'Neil (who stars as the warden) and Kyle Secor, who takes on the part played famously by Tim Robbins, Andy Dufresne, Alan Bissett will talk about his latest Festival challenge - transforming into feminist Andrea Dworkin, we'll have music and conversation from musicals Freak Show and Forest Boy and musical impresario Billy Differ gives us his tips for the best musicals to see at the Edinburgh Festival this year.
