    Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival

    The Edinburgh Fringe Festival draws to a close this weekend. It began in 1947, when a handful of companies that hadn’t been invited to appear in the inaugural Edinburgh International Festival - decided to turn up & perform anyway.

    Since then the Fringe has grown into the largest arts festival in the world with similar events springing up everywhere from Dublin to Dubai. Dave is joined in studio, by a man who has seen his fair share of Fringe festivals - from Edinburgh to LA to Pakistan, Abie Philbin-Bowman.
