Jayde Adams, Comedian and Fringe on Friday host, said: “I’m delighted to be hosting the second AJ Bell Fringe on Friday show. I’ve experienced how valuable the Fringe can be for an artist’s career, from my Best Newcomer nomination back in 2016, to releasing last year’s show as a  comedy special and I’m excited to bring some of that Fringe energy we’ll all be missing so much this summer.

“This is a great way to keep supporting the wonderful artists and venues that come together each August, so get behind your favourites on FringeMakers and enjoy the show.”

About AJ Bell Fringe on Friday

AJ Bell Fringe on Friday is a key part of the FringeMakers campaign, a Fringe-wide fundraising initiative that has been developed in partnership with Crowdfunder. This new, zero-fee platform is designed to help Fringe artists and venues raise vital funds in the absence of a physical festival in 2020. Artists and venues keep 100% of the proceeds from tickets they sell, plus any donations made to their own campaigns. You can find more detail - including a range of artist and venue fundraising campaigns - by visiting the FringeMakers website here.

The broadcast has been brought to life by Scotland-based cultural producers Lucky Cat and Michael Fraser, and production company Inner Ear.
