Storytelling is one of the most ancient forms of art; through it generations were educated and inspired. It is so powerful in stimulating the imagination and taking the listeners to other worlds that it can be quite addictive. It also brings people together rich and poor, the old and the young, while they share the enthusiasm of the storyteller.
In order to celebrate and promote this incredible tradition, storytellers and audiences from all over the world will gather in Edinburgh to take part in the Scottish International Storytelling Festival. This year’s edition will take place from October 19 to 28.

It can be very hard to choose what to see, especially with so many different names you might have never heard of. The beauty of the Fringe is to adventure of immersing yourself into the world of art without having a clue of what you are going to see or if you are going to enjoy it.
The first week of the Festival should certainly be about experimenting. Now, coming to the second week, you can go for those performances that have got the best reviews.
There are so many options out there that it’s good to hear from others what they think is worth watching. Following is a short list of reviews that will help you choose what to watch next.

As the temperature rises and the Fringe starts, Edinburgh is changing its face. Many streets are closed for traffic and open to the public with terrazas, food & drink stands and stages. Being here at this time of the year is a unique experience.
The weather is not as hot as in most of European capitals, which makes walking and enjoying al fresco dining a truly pleasant experience.
Some odd showers may happen but hopefully it will be when you are watching a play or stand-up comedy in a pub.
If you have never been to the Fringe Festival before and haven’t been able to plan your visit in advance, here are some tips.
