You’re on your way to your first show of the day, you’re a bit hungover, and you haven’t eaten in a day and a half. What you need is a slice of pizza – Dough have an extensive array of by-the-slice pies, all delicious sea water crusts and fresh ingredients. Go to them; they’ll see you right.


Captain Cauliflower and Marvin the Mischievous Moose 

Assembly Roxy 

1:15pm – 2:15pm

Sure to keep your kids’ attention, Captain Cauliflower and Marvin the Mischievous Moose is wonderful, silly fun. This clowning pair are hilarious, inventively recreating a dragon battle, a dance with a shark, and a journey into space.


It's True, It's True, It's True

Underbelly, Cowgate

2:50pm – 3:50pm

Based on the court transcripts of a 1612 rape trial in which Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi accused her painting tutor of rape, Breach Theatre’s new play is powerful, bold, and resonating, yet funny too. Anchored by a terrific performance from Ellice Stevens as Artemisia, It’s True... is a devastating adaptation.


The Mosque Kitchen

31 Nicolson Sq


A Fringe institution and all-round winner, the Mosque Kitchen serves up delicious curry all day long with huge plates of spicy goodness starting at just a few quid. If you haven’t been yet, go now. It’s also in a great location; just a few minutes walk from the four major venues.


Felicity Ward: Busting a Nut

Pleasance Courtyard

9pm – 10pm

After two years away, and fresh off her new BBC Radio 4 show Appisodes and a Netflix special, Felicity Ward makes a welcome return to the Fringe with Busting a Nut. A hilarious hour of relatable, family-themed comedy, Ward’s new show is further elevated by some excellent physical comedy.



143 Cowgate 


The Ellon brewery dominates the taps alongside an ever-changing cast of guest beers, a great food menu and, as the name suggests, they are dog friendly. Perfect for an end of the night pint!
