Fringe Benefits

Pop culture illustrator Butcher Billy creates artwork for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2020.

Earlier this year, Butcher Billy was kindly invited by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to come to Scotland, visit the city and create all the artwork for the FRINGE 2020 Programme. The plan was to shine a spotlight on the heroes of the Fringe, from the artists to the backstage crew.

It can be hard to imagine summer without the explosion of creativity and community that the festival brings every year, so while not being able to deliver the festival as normal the Fringe team have forged ahead with a fantastic, digital programme of events that should not be missed!

This year, for the first time in the Fringe’s seven-decade history, they had to make the difficult but unavoidable decision to not publish a Fringe Programme. Despite that, they feel that this is a message worth shouting about, arguably even more so now than before.

With that in mind, they’ve created a range of limited-edition merchandise so you can collect your very own part of the 2020 Fringe and celebrate the programme that never was.

Proceeds from Fringe Shop sales help support the work of the Fringe Society, an independent charity working to support the artists and audiences who together make the Fringe the greatest celebration of arts and culture on the planet.
