From this weekend until the end of August is the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world.
For over 50 years Scotland’s capital city has seen a unique explosion of creative energy within the Fringe and it takes place for three weeks every year.
Thousands of performers take to a multitude of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste; from big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers. The festival caters for everyone and anyone including dance, comedy, theatres, musicals, exhibitions and music. So get inspired to do your own arts and crafts and then let the creativity flow with Ulster Weavers PVC aprons.
The event started back in 1947 when the newly formed Edinburgh International Festival was crashed by eight theatre groups, who turned up uninvited to perform. The initiative was created to celebrate and enrich European cultural lift in the wake of Second World War. Year on year more and more performers crashed the festival until 1959 when the Festival Fringe Society was set up in response to the success of the growing trend.
So join in the celebrations of arts and entertainment at the 2011 Festival Fringe with the help of our gorgeous arts and crafts aprons. We have a wide variety of cotton, PVC and childrens aprons with just about every style you can think of; so if you want to express your inner creativity by painting or drawing you can do and protect your clothing at the same.
