Edinburgh FestivalsIn August last year Public Affairs Co-op published our ‘Politico’s Guide’ to the Edinburgh Festivals.

Looking at the shows we highlighted then it is clear how much the upcoming independence referendum (remember that…) dominated everyone’s thinking.

Well if a week is a long time in politics then a whole year seems like a huge amount has happened in the twelve months since last year’s festival.

We’re still political junkies here at Public Affairs Co-op and love to get our fix from the many shows, talks and events taking place in Edinburgh during the month of August.

We’re recommending 15 shows, talks and events to catch during the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, for those who like a side order of politicking with their festivities.

For real die-hards the Scottish Parliament organises its own ‘Festival of Politics’ from 14-16 August that is worth checking out.

So here are our recommendations – click on the links for more details:
