Bedfringe gets underway on Thursday July 21 with 115 events over ten days at the Quarry Theatre.

The line-up features performances by more than 30 local groups and 40 acts heading Edinburgh, presenting a carefully selected programme of comedy, theatre, live music, film, dance and physical theatre.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Bedfringe is moving into the Quarry Theatre, bringing to the main auditorium and studio theatre acts ranging from stand-up comedy, theatre, music, dance to hi-tech shows like WiFi Wars where the audience members play games against each other on a huge projected screen.

Other highlights include the fourth instalment of Joe Bone’s Bane series of film noir parodies, Tom Binns - the only comedian to get a five-star review in The Scotsman at last year’s Edinburgh fringe -and Paul Foot, who will be performing inging his new show Tis a Pity She’s a Piglet!

There’s plenty do to for the children as well – and thanks to Bedfordshire Inflatables, lots of garden games will be out for the little ones to play with including Space Hoppers, Connect 4 and limbo.

Children’s show highlights include Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show, Bad Guys starring Three Half Pints - stars of CBeebies Spot Bots- and The Last Post, a show that tours by van.
