The Edinburgh Festival is about five festivals. There’s the Book Festival, home to top authors and commentators and set in leafy Charlotte Square; the International Festival, which hosts lush, clever productions of the high arts; the Art Festival, which gathers together special exhibitions and regular galleries; and the Fringe, which is what most people mean when they talk airily of the Festival, bulging with all manner of comedy, theatre and music from pros and amateurs.

After her recent totally sold out and incredibly highly acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival and at Leicester Square Theatre, Bridget Christie takes her ‘electrifying’ show BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT around the UK.
It’s the biggest arts fest on the planet, in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Throughout summer world-class music, theatre, comedy, dance, cabaret and art descend on hundreds of venues around Edinburgh, from grand concert halls and churches to public toilets and underground caves. This is why Edinburgh is known all over the world simply as ‘the Festival City’.
Winner of a Total Theatre Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012 (remor) lands in Greenwich for its only London dates. Part of a new micro-theatre movement in response to the financial crisis, audiences are admitted into a large rusted container. Inside is the exact replica of a Majorcan prison cell. This physical theatre piece shows two bodies attempting to share a space, a sentence and survival. Their physical intensity will be seared on the mind long after you escape their cell.
