The Free Fringe began in 1996, founded by Peter Buckley Hill, with his show Peter Buckley Hill And Some Comedians. It returns in 2012, with a large programme of quality shows across Edinburgh throughout the Fring, and The Voodoo Rooms is very happy to be part of this years programme. As ever, there will be no charge to the public, with free entry at all venues, and no charges to performers. Edinburgh can be an expensive place, especially during festival time. The Free Fringe is an excellent opportunity to sample some great comedy, and save some hard earned cash at the same time. In 2012 we will also have expanded non-comedy sections, both Theatre and Poetry/Spoken Word. We have many stages in many venues for around the City of Edinburgh; some luxurious, others historic, all different. Wherever we're performing, we'll bring the famous Free Fringe spirit to the shows. Why not see several shows in a row? With bar facilities and back to back free shows at all our venues, you can save your feet, as well as your money.
