24 Hours at Edinburgh Festival

It's festival time again in Edinburgh. Throughout August over 50,000 performers from all over the world will appear at its famous arts festivals - from comedians to Bollywood dancers, poets to acrobats - and pretty much everything in between. But how much culture can one person take?
BBC Radio Leicester's Becca Bryers decided to take on the challenge of staying awake for one full day to find out. Her wake-up alarm was set for 8am on Saturday morning... and she wouldn't return to bed for a full 24 hours. The Edinburgh festivals continue throughout the month, and you can see photos from Becca's 24 hours in Edinburgh challenge on Twitter - find her - @beccabryers
