What an incredible few days we have had at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival so far. Our cast of students and professionals have been amazing attracting big crowds with their professional performances on and off stage.
On Sunday 10th August we had our opening night at Spotlites @ The Merchant’s Hall that blew the audience away. We received some fantastic reviews that were well deserved for all the hard work everyone puts in to the performances.

The response to the show has been great and we know it will just get better and better as the week goes on.
Not only have our cast been busy with performances, but they have also been promoting the show as much as possible by parading up and down the Royal Mile and around the streets of Edinburgh handing out flyers and talking to visitors of the Fringe. On Monday and Tuesday we had a couple of street performances booked in on the Middle Stage on the Royal Mile to give the public a little taste of The Wind Road Boys. This was received very well as hundreds of people gathered to see the impressive talent on display.
The cast have even managed to squeeze in seeing a couple of shows and on Tuesday evening after the performance we decided to try some Ceilidh dancing. Everyone had a fantastic night of fun and entertainment and are really looking forward to seeing what the next few days will bring.
