The 2009 Fringe Festival kicked off last night in Civic Square and wow, it was one hell of a party.
To normal people, outside the arts world, this might all sounds a little daunting, so I’ll explain.
There’s a big tent at the bottom of the steps to the Canberra Theatre. It’s free to go into and fun stuff is happening at one end. There are tables and chairs in the middle. There is a bar at the other end.
Walk in, sit down, enjoy the fun stuff, drink heavily, go jump in the fountains.
See, not so hard after all?
Simple fun, free apart from the booze which, while not cheap, isn’t extortionate either.
It’s on every night ’till the 14th, and it runs to 1am. If you feel the need to plan here’s a program.
