Performing at the Street Events as a school or class
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe takes place every August for just over three weeks. It’s the world’s largest open access art festival where you and your classes can find theatre, comedy, circus, music, dance and much more in venues and streets all over Edinburgh. Additionally, street performers from around the world perform on the Royal Mile and at the Mound for thousands of people every day.
In 2018, at one of our teacher consultations, there was a call for space to be made within the Street Events programme specifically for school-aged children and young people to perform.
This led to the successful pilot of our Schools on the Street project in 2019. Over 100 young people, from schools across Edinburgh and beyond, performed on the Royal Mile on one of three days we’d set aside for the project.
