The Edinburgh Festival Fringe was one of the many artistic casualties of the global pandemic, meaning the streets of the Capital have remained free of the usual August hubbub since the last full edition was held back in 2019.
The return of the event, scheduled to take place from August 5-29, will be welcomed by all those who missed the annual cultural feast, as well as business owners who rely on the huge number of visitors that flock to the city.
Nearly 300 shows have already gone on sale, with all the main venues planning to put on a full programme of theatre, comedy, music and arts – from the Pleasance Courtyard and Gilded Balloon, to the Stand Comedy Club and Summerhall.
Here are 10 of the shows you can bag seats for now – with tickets available at the Edinburgh Fringe website.
