Edinburgh Fringe Diary: Day 14

Edinburgh Festival

Edinburgh Festival

Our last day at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012, but perhaps one of our most favourite one yet.

For it all started with Bridget Christie delivering one of the highlights of this year’s Fringe, with her show War Donkey – all about the rise of Tory feminists, as well as donkeys (Assembly Rooms, 1.30pm).

We then dashed to see Matthew Kelly: The Musical at Buff’s Club nearby (2.30pm), only to be disappointed to learn that the day’s show was cancelled. This was made up for by pints that cost less than £3. His show is on the for the rest of the run though, so head along.

With inspiration from the madness of Christie, is was our turn to to become performers on the Royal Mile, taking part in an improvised version of Shakespear on Ice on one of Virgin’s stages. Richard Branson would have approved of my take on the embodiment of water.

Then Benjamin Crellin at Cabarat Voltaire (7.30pm), who delivered a rather divisive show that saw several walkouts towards the end. Go along and make up your own mind. Or something.

A quick sleep and coffee at the Dome before heading to Wee Red Bar for an indie disco to say goodbye to the greatest arts event on the planet. Goodbye.
