Many awards have already been dished out and we are fast approaching the final weekend of this year’s Festival Fringe.

And so it has never been more important to book up and make some tough decisions for what to see – there’s no time for them all!

Its not all about the punchline

Edinburgh in August has a ridiculous amount of variety on offer. While comedy seems to dominate don’t forget there is spoken word, drama, music and dance. Can anyone recommend a show for Caitlin Agnew to see?

What shall we do with the kids?

Bring them along to the festival of course! Why not check out this event taking place at the Edinburgh International Book Festival at 4.30pm today?

Or maybe investigate these suggestions from Amy Walker

Festival sights

Edinburgh Sportlight has noticed the annual problem of festival flab caused by flyering which is spreading up and down the Royal Mile.

This duo of dodgy characters were spotted on a train heading north to Edinburgh from Manchester yesterday. Keep and eye out for this pair, they look suspicious. Coal

Pics of the festival

What would you like to see in Scotland in the future? Let’s keep it simple and take a look at this drawing by five-year-old Adam at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

While that is good and puts a smile on your face this second picture is really quite funny. It might even make you lol! Thanks to Philip Simon for Tweeting this one.
