5 August 2019


The Edinburgh Art Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe kicked off this weekend, and we’re proud and excited to acknowledge  the delegation of talented  Kiwi artists and creatives presenting their work until 25 August.

Fringe festivalgoers in the Scottish city are being treated to over 30 shows and presentations by New Zealanders across the spectrum of comedy, theatre, physical theatre, and musical and cabaret shows.
