The Fringe has officially begun!! And I plan to MILK it for all it’s worth. Excuse the cow pun, but don’t mooove on too quickly. Guaranteed there will be many, many more to come. A newly-acquired wealth of cow puns is just one of the many benefits of working at the Underbelly, one of the flagship venues of the Festival Fringe. More about this later, but before I move on I want to introduce you to Violet, our beautiful upside down purple cow. She is part theatre space and part Fringe icon…isn’t she a beauty?
You can find her grazing in Bristo Square by the University of Edinburgh. And her other sister venues are in located in the appropriately-named Cowgate, near the Grassmarket. It’s the latter venue that houses the little Press Office where I’ve been spending most of my waking hours over the past week and learning all the juicy mysteries of press & marketing.
