Arthur Smith announces Edinburgh Fringe show

Arthur Smith will not be daunted by the cancellation of the biggest arts festival in the world this summer. He has been hosting his legendary late-night tours of the Royal Mile on the fringe since 1977 and at this, his 43rd festival, he will return with a socially distanced walking tour of Edinburgh full of laughs, poetry and surprises. AKA a piece of radical, site-specific, outdoor promenade performance art. And probably the only show on the fringe!
