Shona McCarthy, chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said: “We’re now well on our way to Fringe 2023, and having so many more shows go live this week is yet another reason to get excited.

“It feels like August is just around the corner, and once again Edinburgh will be filled with artists, creatives, and people with amazing stories to tell.

“From theatre to comedy, cabaret to music, children’s shows to circus; the shows going on sale today represent the breadth and depth of creativity that will be bursting from every seam of Edinburgh this August.

“The Fringe and all its moving parts are still in recovery, I encourage you to support the artists and their work this summer, get browsing, get booking and come and see their shows.”
