Edinburgh Fringe: Exit Interview

Sitting in his cramped High Street office, Paul Gudgin, who has run the Edinburgh Fringe for eight years said “the lack of affordable accommodation in the city was the Fringe’s Achilles Heel and by far the most difficult challenge the event needs to overcome in future years. He also called on the Fringe’s public funding to be dramatically increased, from the current level of £65,000 a year to around £300,000.”
