This year, the Primary Times Children’s Choice review panel will be celebrating five successive years of watching some of the best family theatre at the largest and most exciting arts festival in the world. At these children’s shows young minds have been educated, entertained and engaged by truly enriching storytelling and performances. And once again, it’s time for family audiences and the Primary Times review panel to be enlightened with a whole host of amusing stories at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Primary Times team will be adding informative and unbiased reviews to its website throughout the duration of the festival.

Read what they have to say at - just follow the links to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The best show will be presented with the coveted Primary Times Children’s Choice Award 2018 by Director of Primary Times Edinburgh, Linda Edwards, at a short ceremony in mid-August.
