Only a week ago we were in the midst of a heatwave, but this week it seems that summer has disappeared and the rainclouds have moved in for the time being. All the more reason to catch as many indoor events at the Edinburgh Fringe as possible and wrigglers have been flocking to our shows in wellies and cute rainwear.
Last month Recitals for Wrigglers South performed at the Petworth Fringe where we invited local wrigglers to Wriggle around the World with us. They then wriggled up the stairs to see the fabulous Nick Cope and his wonderfully funny songs, which he will be singing up here in Edinburgh – more on that later. We also enjoyed playing to the children of Lyne and Longcross school who made us a beautiful thank you card!
Up in Edinburgh we Danced Into Summer at Holyrood House before taking the show to Tribe Porty, Stockbridge Church and Linlithgow. The Palace is always a special occasion and as always was a sellout show. We look forward to going back, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for details.
We began our run at the Edinburgh Fringe on August 6th and had a sellout first week. Thank you to The List for choosing us, out of 153 childrens shows, as a ‘Top Tip’. We are playing two shows, The Lion and the Mouse and our Fringe sellout show Wriggle Around the World, until August 26th. The shows are all selling well, so book your tickets while you can! We have thought very carefully about how to price our tickets this year, following feedback from our audiences last year. We have dropped the price of our adult tickets to £8, have included our tickets in the Friends of the Fringe 2 for 1 ticket offer and made sure that our family ticket is a bargain.
Stockbridge Church has been our Fringe venue since we began and is a family friendly and fully accessible venue in a pleasant part of town, so it is worth making the short trip here to escape the hustle and bustle of the centre.
On Saturday we will be performing a ‘Super Saturday Sandwich Show’ at Stockbridge Church, with the very fabulous Nick Cope performing his show in between ours. Nick is also playing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, where his shows have totally sold out and we are very lucky that he has agreed to do a pop up show with us. His show at Stockbridge Church is selling well, so book tickets while you can!
Clea has been busy at the fringe playing with Ron Davis in his jazz gig, SymphRONica, and will be performing in GRIT next week as part of the International Festival, so if you have a Wriggler-free evening, come and check it out!
