The People’s Fringe – Where the London 2012 Games meets the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
When you think of a Fringe festival you immediately think of Edinburgh and its legendary cultural celebration held in August each year. Although if you happen to live anywhere in the bottom half of the UK, the prospect of travelling to Edinburgh for its Fringe Festival, for some, may be unpractical and unachievable.
By the same token, thousands were left disappointed about not being able to get their hands on a ticket for this year’s Olympic Games, meaning they will be forced to watch the Olympic events on screens or TVs instead of being at the ‘real thing’.
If this sounds familiar and you are either immensely frustrated about not having a ticket for London 2012 or really want to visit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival but are unable to, there is an alternative solution so that you won’t miss out on all the fun – attend the People’s Fringe festival in London!
This nine-day festival runs from the 3rd August 2012 until 12th August 2012 at Netherhouse Farm in Waltham Abbey. Away from the hectic buzz of the Olympic Games, the People’s Fringe will be a unique celebration of culture, food and sport, offering highly entertaining activities for all the family.
Throughout the festival Netherhouse Farm will be transformed into an arena of multiple villages, with stalls, interactive gaming areas, chef demonstrations, helicopter rides, splash pools, hot tubs and virtual reality gaming.
The general theme of what promises to be a highly entertaining family event is health, fitness and creativity. Asides the 500+ stalls, top DJs, dance workshops, interactive snow areas and tournament gaming shows will be put on in an event that ‘reflects the people and offers most sectors an opportunity to participate.’
The People’s Fringe festival’s emphasis on sport is designed to give sportsmen and women from sports that will not be at the London 2012 Olympics the opportunity to take centre stage.
