Checking Fringes Festivals
- Ah Edinburgh Fringe destroyed itself so what about other fringes ?

- Everyday life is boring so make evryday a non regular day that's why I like to seek out festivals : the problem as is that in life 90% OF THE HAILED IS KAK ANYWAY SO I HAVE TO WADE THROUGH A LOT OF RUBBISH ..THATS WHY GETTING HOLD OF A LOT OF FREE TICKETS IS IMPORTANT

- Problem is it's never worth committing cos it's crap if it rains "So what if it rains festival"

- End July/Aug Bedford Fringe is like a mini-Edinburgh average £7.50 a production ..went thru the programme..it's mostly comedy ..and comedy died 20 years ago

- MK free fringe festival until July 29th but mostly art teacher stuff

- There's a new fringe festival in Manchester for all of July 24-7 Fringe in Manchester
- seems based around a comedy pub in Manchester some free events, some plays for £5 ...no way to steward

Buxton 4-22 July similar to Bedford a lot of £8 comedies I SHOULD HAVE APPLIED TO VOLUNTEER at a FRINGE SHOW cos the only way to guarantee seeing anything worthwhile is to get free tix for lots of shows
Buxton free shows
FREE WWW DOT - Top Hats Off A physical comedy inspired by the invention.....
