Supporting the Fringe, from the ground up!
Tuesday 21 August, 2018
This year, Field and Lawn’s Edinburgh team once again supported the World’s largest arts festival in a variety of capacities and across a range of event sites.
For the month of August, some of Edinburgh’s residents flee their homes in anticipation of the hustle and bustle of crowds anxious to be a part of the weird and wonderful goings on that can only happen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
As some leave, we make our way to the City to begin setup. In Edinburgh’s thriving West End we built pagodas to house some of the country’s finest arts and crafts exhibitors. 3D2D Craft & Design Fairs are one of Field and Lawn’s oldest clients, and we support them throughout the year to ‘unite makers, artists and designers with the buying public’. In this unique pocket of the festival, guests prepare to meander through the maze of stalls bursting with creative talent, while taking in the stunning architecture and immersive greenery which surrounds St John’s Church.
Moving towards the buzzing hub of the central Fringe activities, you will find Field and Lawn marquees and tents dotted throughout the likes of the Underbelly – in Bristo Square, George Square and the Meadows.
Each year, we are delighted to support the talented performers, who travel from all over the world to take part in our nation’s Fringe festival. From giving guests shelter from the elements under our range of temporary structures, to ensuring our setups don’t allow guests a sneaky glimpse of performers until they are on stage, we work from the ground up to give all guests the best possible experience of the Edinburgh Fringe.
