The Festival Café at The Edinburgh Fringe

Post categories:

Rich Preston | 14:57 UK time, Thursday, 5 August 2010

With the Edinburgh Fringe Festival underway this week, we're putting the final preparations in place for our live Festival Café programmes. From this coming Monday, our home will be at Festival Venue 150 - the Edinburgh International Conference Centre for two weeks. Each day we'll have a top line up of Festival acts, featuring music, theatre, comedy and much more.

We're lucky enough to have four extra team members on board to help us out through the Festival run, and they've already thrown themselves into booking acts, arranging screenings and going off recording items. It's great to have them here and we hope they enjoy their time on The Festival Café!

You can tune in to the programmes at the usual time - 1315 on BBC Radio Scotland. Or, even better, why not come along and see the show yourself, LIVE and for FREE at the EICC (sounds like a catchphrase...). To get your tickets just call the box office on 0131 226 0000.

To keep updated with what we've got planned then you can follow us on Twitter too - Twitter.com/BBCFestivalCafe.

Rich Preston from the Café's team has sent us this blog about the Festival Café's programmes from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
