Upswing: My Edinburgh

13th Jul 2016

We had a chat with Upswing, who told us all about the fantastic family show they're bringing to Underbelly's Circus Hub this year, Bedtime Stories, and what they love best about the Fringe.

Have you performed at the Fringe before?

No it’s our first time and we are very very very excited!

Where’s your favourite spot in Edinburgh?

The Camera Obscura!

What will you be packing in your suitcase for the Fringe?

Our pyjamas, teddy bears, Naughty Bunny ( the show’s mascot) and torches.

Do you know who Greyfriars Bobby is?

YES! The most faithful guard dog ever! 

What’s the best show you’ve ever seen at the Fringe?

Tough question! We love the street performers on the Royal Mile, they make the festival even more special!

What’s the best piece of advice you’d give (or have been given) about the Fringe?

Use your imagination to reach your audience and make sure you enjoy the festival!

To ceilidh or not to ceilidh?

To ceilidh. ALWAYS.

What can audiences expect from your show?

A totally new experience that is part circus, part visual feast, part theatre and part…well that’s the worst kept secret: both parents and young children will enjoy a magical adventure snuggled up in beds!
