With a spot of sea air and an entertaining line-up of music, comedy, theatre, film, author and children's events, North Berwick's multi-arts festival offers a respite from the madness of Edinburgh in festival season.
Founded in 2008, Fringe by the Sea is a not-for-profit, 10 day multi-arts festival set in the beautiful seaside town of North Berwick bringing together like minded people who share a passion for the arts.
Originally created as a community arts festival with a limited number of local acts and attendees, the event has grown over 14 years and now delivers over 150 events to nearly 40,000 visitors.
The main setting for the festival is the beautiful Lodge Gardens overlooking the beautiful Bass Rock. In 2022, the festival will feature a strong mix of local, national and international talent across music, literature, comedy, science and nature as well as delicious food and drink from the county’s best street food stalls. With more than 150 separate events, Fringe By The Sea has something for everyone.
