Page A (1 of 2 pages) Edinburgh Fringe Children's Shows


One of our children's quotes from last years Edinburgh Fringe Festival Childrens shows said:

"I loved the singing and dancing and joined in.  Their costumes were nice and sparkly. My favourite colour was red, she does the splits really cool and all their dancing was fabulous.  I liked the music too. All the colours are separate and you can mix them to make something beautiful".
