Dinosaurs at the McEwan Hall

When you see a full size dinosaur crossing the road you know the Festival Fringe is full swing. The dinosaur in question was part of Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, currently showing at the McEwan Hall at 11am each day until August 26th. Erth’s dinosaurs are manually operated by supremely skilled puppeteers, but interact with the audience […]

The cow has landed!

A huge purple cow has once again landed in George Square gardens for a month of festival fun. I’m always impressed with how green George Square is as you have to search for the upturned cow within the trees.
