Advertising at our ceilidhs
We run ceilidhs (Scottish dances) 9-11pm every evening during the Fringe except Sundays with audiences of ~ 50-200. We offer a free evening to Fringe Groups if you perform ~ 5 minutes from your show at the interval (~10pm), whether you are performing at Lauriston Halls or not. 1st come, 1st served. If you are too late booking the 5 minutes, you can still quickly advertise your show. It's a fun night out for your group. There's also a bar: soft drinks £1, alcohol £3.
