The BBC has written to me about the Edinburgh recordings... letter follows... If you are going to be at Edinburgh this year, let me know and I will put you in touch with Natalie.

Hi Dean

My name is Natalie and I am working with BBC Radio 4.

BBC Radio 4 is setting up a stage on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh for a one-off comedy experience. If you are going to be at the festival, let us know and we’ll let you know details of how to be part of it and capture some exclusive content for your group.

BBC Radio 4 returns to the event with a selection of its best comedy, arts and festival programmes. And for the first time, to launch its exciting Edinburgh Fringe showcase, will set up stage on Edinburgh’s busy Royal Mile on Sunday 15th August at 1pm for a one-off comedy experience.

Joining host Miles Jupp on stage will be top comedians, including Doc Brown, Andrew Lawrence and Tom Wrigglesworth, to name but a few.

The people of Edinburgh will also be treated to two open-air editions of BBC Radio 4’s iconic panel game, Just A Minute, with legendary host Nicholas Parsons. Resident panellist Paul Merton and Gyles Brandreth will be teaching the likes of Stephen K Amos and others, how to play the game. Look out for some familiar faces popping up in the crowd just before the fun begins!

Those not in Edinburgh can watch here, view exclusive footage via the red button from Wednesday 25th August, and listen to a special festival programme on Thursday 19th August at 6.30pm on BBC Radio 4. You can also follow us @BBCRadio4 on Twitter and on Facebook. We’ll also be seeding a 3-min round up of the Royal Mile stunt and also the 4-5 clips capturing all the action on and off stage! Please let us know if you would like to receive the clips and we can arrange for some content to be sent to you after the event for your group.
