There’s only one week left until the start of the Stirling Fringe Festival which is now in its third year (hurrah!)
In its short history the Stirling Fringe has grown rapidly to include an eclectic programme of music, comedy, theatre, poetry and family friendly events that place across the city. The Fringe attracts artistic talent from around the world as well as supporting and developing local, home-grown performers.
There’s loads of events taking place throughout the festival, and you’ll find a full schedule on the Fringe website here, but we thought we’d give you a rundown of our top 3…
- Gary Little – Comedian – Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum
A regular at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and the winner of ‘Best Headline’ and ‘Best Show’ at the inaugural Scottish Comedy Awards last year, Gary Little is an act not to be missed.
Gary has been described as a “born raconteur” and this natural storyteller can take the everyday and weave it into non-stop hilarity. Tickets cost £10 and are sure to sell out fast so book here.
