Day 2 of the festival began with a bang!
We rushed to try to find C Nova for the first performance of the day to attend a beautifully written play called the Stolen Inches. The cast were wonderful and the whole atmosphere was created the second we walked in. It runs daily at 12.15pm in C Nova at the top of the Royal Mile. See our Edinburgh Fringe Section above for the full review.
We then went to meet an original Bay City Roller (Ya I know, it was awesome!). Alan Longmuir is a legend amongst men. He was happy to pose for photos and shared stories of being at parties with the Beatles, chatting away to Cilla Black at after parties and many, many more including receiving a letter from John Lennon which he still has to this day.
If you want to see his life story, he is performing ‘And I ran with the Gang’ in Le Monde, George Street Sunday to Friday 7th to the 31st of August. It is said to include songs like Bye, Bye Baby, it is written by Liam Rudden and will have a question and answer session afterwards with Alan himself. We’ll definitely be going to that one!
Went out for dinner to the purely vegetarian restaurant, David Bann. (Below)
A quick beer in Pleasance and we got persuaded to a comedy show called Princes of Man, partly due to some good flyering work by one of the Cast Members. When we weren’t sure about going, but when he came back with two free tickets, how could we say no. It was a funny show and the three former members of the Cambridge Footlights were as tight as you can get. They have a good bit to work on and will relax after a few more shows, but it was a nice way to end the evening.
Overall Day 2 was a success. It genuinely flew by. There is just so much to see and do here and the smell of cretivity and excitement is wonderfully overwhelming. We just hope we can get to as many shows as possible. What would ye like to see reviewed?
All my Love as usual,
