Fringe in the Attic: Share your festival memories with us
11 May 2020
In this uncertain world, there are two things we know for sure: we’re absolutely gutted the Fringe isn’t taking place as normal in 2020 - and raiding through stuff you’ve got squirreled away in your house is a whole lot of fun.
To help keep the spirit of the Fringe alive this year, we’re launching Fringe in the Attic. This project is all about shining a spotlight on the bits and bobs from Fringes past you’ve got lying around. We want to see old programmes, props and posters, as well as mementos, memorabilia and magazines. Share that costume you wore in your hit 1992 show. Show us that flyer you had framed in 2008. Bonus points to any and all retro haircuts that make it on to our screens.
For the next month, we’ll be on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (@edfringe, since you asked), hunting for our favourites to collect and share.
We know lots of you will miss leafing through the pages of the Fringe programme this year. To help you through as part of #FringeInTheAttic we've also been bringing you past Fringe programmes, online and in full via our social media channels. In case you've missed it, here are the years we've dug out so far:
- 1990 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1991 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1992 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1993 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1994 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1995 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1996 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1997 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
- 1998 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme
To keep things neat and organised - as every attic should be - we’ll be focusing on a different decade each week, starting with the glorious 1990s. Keep an eye on our channels for updates. If you’re not on social and want to share your memories, get in touch with us at [email protected].
We’ll be pulling together our favourites and sharing them, so make sure to tag us or use hashtag #FringeInTheAttic to let us know what you’ve found.
