Aussie Acts to see at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe

By Colin Flaherty

It’s shaping up to be another big year for Australian acts at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. From those performing the highly polished shows that they have been touring since Perth Fringe way back in January, to the expats with their world premieres, there are plenty of Antipodean entertainment choices.

Our British correspondent, Ron Bingham, will shortly be providing reviews to give us a glimpse of this year’s huge Edinburgh Fringe including, perhaps, some overseas performers likely to be heading to Australian shores in the near future. Watch this space.
