What are the key challenges facing the Edinburgh Festival Fringe?

In the first of three editions recorded at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival, we consider the key challenges facing the Edinburgh Fringe community. What have been the key talking points at the Festival this month? What are the most pressing issues? What are possible solutions?

ThreeWeeks Edinburgh Co-Editor Chris Cooke sat down at theSpace @ Surgeons Hall venue during the second week of this year’s Festival to chat to five people working, producing, performing and reviewing at the Fringe. We wanted to know: how is this year’s Festival going, are we fully back post-COVID, and what changes need to be made to ensure the long-term future of the biggest cultural festival on the planet.
