Book Edinburgh hostels to participate in Fringe events
Culture vultures weighing up their summer holiday options should consider putting the Scottish city of Edinburgh at the top of the list of places to go in August, as this is when the region is holding its annual Fringe event, featuring thousands of different types of performers and activities.

Booking Edinburgh hostels for the three weeks the fiesta takes place is likely to prove enlightening and exciting indeed, as all tastes are sure to be catered for - attendees will, after all, be treated to a melange of entertainment across a number of genres, including opera, musicals, dance, theatre, comedy and exhibitions. In fact, it's possible people will be spoiled for choice.

Acts that are waiting to wow travellers staying in hostels in Edinburgh include the UK's Moonlight Serenade Orchestra, Gemma Goggin, Jonny Sweet, The Dirty Immigrant Collective, Alan Cumming - who will be performing songs from his first-ever album, I bought a Blue Car Today - and several events for all the Gleeks out there.

Fans of the TV show will probably enjoy the West End Glee Club and The Singalong Glee Club, as well as Showstopper: The Improvised Musical, while theatre lovers can immerse themselves in events such as puppeteers The River People, which are to be performing a premiere of The Terrible Tales of the Midnight Chorus at the Bedlam, a venue that is also to be celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Other productions include Uber Hate from Horizon Arts, which took last year's Holden Street Theatre Award for Heroin(e) For Breakfast.
