It’s a busy month in Edinburgh during August with The Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Book Festival going on and its been no exception in the clinic. This August we’ve had quite a number of the performers from the Fringe and the Tattoo along with touring cricketers.
From the Fringe we’ve had Circa Contemporary Circus who came in on mass at the beginning of the festival before beginning their 3 week visit and several of the performers have been back in over the last 3 weeks. Actress Jo Bending from the fantastic play The Kingmaker and comedian Jason Byrne. From the Tattoo we’ve had members of both the Australian Federal Police Pipe Band and the Tasmanian Police Pipe Band in to help them deal with the rigors of what has been a demanding visit with quite a number of events on outside of the Tattoo itself including The Commonwealth Games, Pipe Band World Championships and a number of satellite events for the Tattoo itself.
Outside of the the festivals this week we’ve been working with the New Zealand A team cricketers on the Scottish leg of their UK tour. They’ve been in the UK for 4 weeks already and with another 2 weeks to go before they go home, and straight into their home season, they are definitely feeling the strain a bit.
All in all an interesting month so far and it’s not over yet.
