Fringe By The Sea 2017 – 7th- 13th August

Returning to it’s idyllic seaside setting, Fringe By The Sea looks like a real treat once again and perfect for a day out from Edinburgh- get yourself some fish and chips, have a paddle in the sea and check out some of the offerings of this unique fringe festival !

There are a handful of kids events this year, including a Rockpooling session and some very fun Alien Aerobics !!

Bookbug sessions will be running on the 8th, 10th and 12th August, offering their usual and much loved stories and songs.


Of course Mr. Boom will be making a return on the 8th and 9th August  to entertain and delight children, parents and grandparents alike. An hour of cosmic fun for everyone. Singing, musical games, tell a joke or sing a song. Be a pixie in the pixie ring. Jump, skip, dance around the sun.


Award winning Author Stuart Reid brings boogers, books, big bottom burps and the wacky characters in his Gorgeous George series to life.  It will be yucky. There may be snot. You have been warned!  All this on 10th August.


Alexander The Great returns with his magic and circus skills, suitable for ages 3 and up on the 10th and 12th August.


On Friday 11th August one of the East Lothian Rangers will lead a rock pooling walk along the beach. Numbers are limited so book early for this one if you can…

Big Fish Little Fish are bringing one of their family friendly parties to the seaside on the 11th August ! Rave legend DJ SLIPMATT will play the ‘Mermaids and Pirate’ themed party. Fancy dress optional, but encouraged. The family raves include bubble machines, club visuals and a giant parachute dance. Events also offer a play and chillout area for babies, as well as a quality themed crafting area featuring colouring murals, playdough and transfer tattoos.

To wrap up the childrens events, on Saturday 12th Alien Aerobics will offer a fun and light hearted dance workout to a retro soundrack of hits from The 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. The class is a mixture of aerobics, basic choreography, stretching, toning and relaxation. Optional dress code: space age/ sparkles (prize for the best dressed!). All levels welcome including beginners.


So it looks like there is plenty to keep you busy down by the sea in North Berwick for a few days at least !!
