It's a wrap! The Showstoppers bring us their final summary of the festival. See you all next year guys!

Steffan Alun: The Festival is Always Worth It

Stand Up Steffan Alun has a fair few things to say about stepping up to stand up at the Free Fringe. We’ve asked him to write an irregular column for us about the whys and indeed hows of performing comedy in Edinburgh.

​The Paula Varjack Three Minute Interview

Paula Varjack is a writer, filmmaker and performance maker. She has performed at numerous arts festivals including Glastonbury Festival and Berlin International Literature Festival, and is the creator of the Anti-Slam, a satirical take on poetry slams where the lowest score wins. Her solo theatre show, How I Became Myself (by Becoming Someone Else), is at the Edinburgh Fringe. Carly Brown chatted with her about building a multi-media show, creating a persona and her favorite aspect of the Fringe.

PieOfTheDay: Pork Pie

Every now and again you may fancy a little decadence. A little indulgence. A little extravagance. Where better to take a moment away from it all than the National Gallery of Scotland? In the light and airy Contini Restaurant there is not only a pie, but a platter to be celebrated. Named for restaurant owner Robert Corrigan this sumptuous pork pie is served with homemade cannonball chutney, Scottish garden salad and a hearty mug of the daily soup. At the end of the Fringe you may like to treat yourself, and there's no better place than this.
