Opinion: Trying to Remember Edinburgh's Past Cults

I’ve been visiting the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 1963. In the early days there were six comedy shows in the programme, which was printed on vellum and hand-delivered to critics who were ferried from show to show on sedan chairs carried by theology students from Edinburgh University. Hog roasts were served in journalists’ rooms at the end of the day – around 4.30pm.
