One last tilt at the Edinburgh Festival

This summer we are returning briefly to the Edinburgh Festival to say our last goodbyes (for now). Come and join us to celebrate 10 preposterous years and help us figure out what it is we do next.

Fri 11 August
The Last Waltz
Cameo Cinema, Home Street, EH3 9LZ
Free but booking recommended

This is goodbye, for now. Forest Fringe is leaving the Edinburgh Festival to try out some new adventures elsewhere. This is our goodbye party and in the spirit of the last ten years we hope it will be big, free, eclectic, eccentric, frequently chaotic and occasionally, unexpectedly, very beautiful. Come for film, music, performance, drinks and weirdness with artists including Andy Field, Double Pussy Clit F*ck, Foxy & Husk, Ira Brand, Julia Taudevin, H Giles, Louise Orwin, Nick Anderson, Richard DeDomenici, Ryan Van Winkle, Sh!t Theatre, Tim Etchells and Tom Parkinson, with more to be announced very soon.

Just as importantly, this event is our attempt to raise some money for another group of artists to create their own space at the festival, just as we did over a decade ago. A passing of the torch. A long drawn-out goodbye and a hope for the beginning of something very new.

If you’d like to donate some money towards this fund you can do so quickly and easily via paypal or with a card payment by clicking ‘donate’ below:

The Amateurs Club

Fruitmarket Gallery, Market Street
Free, no booking required

The Amateurs Club is a new monthly art club. It is a place where professionals of all kinds can come to be amateurs, a club where everyone is welcome, where we will commit together to collective unknowing, and plunge in anyway. In this space we will meet, explore, exchange, discuss, imagine and experiment. Most importantly, it is a space for doing things, or for learning how to do things, from cinematography to civil disobedience to founding a political party.

In this very first introductory event, having said our last goodbye to the festival the night before we will be asking the question ‘what should Forest Fringe do next?’.
