Event Preview: Fair Trade on the Fringe, 28 – 31 August, Grassmarket, Edinburgh

5 Jul

Fair Trade comes to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the first time this year with exhibitors displaying the very best fair trade products from across the globe at the city’s Grassmarket from Friday 28 to Monday 31 August.

With home wares, fashion, jewellery, handbags, food and drink, books, music and much more, Fair Trade on the Fringe will offer visitors to the world’s largest arts festival a unique shopping experience in the heart of the city’s iconic Old Town.

And, for anyone feeling “fringed-out” there will be world music, kids’ activities, free samples and tastings to help lift the spirits and help promote Fair Trade issues in an exciting and inspiring way.
Housed in a giant open-sided marquee just off the famous Royal Mile with views of Edinburgh Castle, this free event is perfect for families, tourists, performers and residents looking to soak up the festival atmosphere.

Visit the Hand Up Media website for more information on the event.
