Chance of cheaper accommodation on the Edinburgh Fringe?

TODAY'S Scotsman reports that one of the ideas to find favour in the Edinburgh Festivals Ideas Challenge is a campsite on the Meadows for Fringe-goers. The idea would have to get approval - and apparently the neighbours aren't keen - but it's being taken seriously.

The article is here.

One thing to remember if you're a performer, as The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide points out, is you might live to regret cutting corners on accommodation. Living in a tent may sound like a great way to balance your budget, but after performing for two weeks and a couple of heavy rain showers, will it seem such a bargain?

  1. I would prefer to stay in a tent to have more money left to enjoy my stay in Edinburgh. It will complete the whole experience of my adventure there.
