THE Sunday National’s can’t-miss coverage of the Fringe begins today – with the stage set for some fantastic offers.

We’re Scotland’s only pro-independence newspaper, and we love celebrating our nation’s cultural landscape.

Later this week, we’ll be revealing more details about our special Fringe subscription deal – which includes offering a free trial of the Premium Plus subscription on our website, with a discounted rate if you decide to stay with us after that.

Sunday National arts critic Mark Brown is helping to raise the curtains on our coverage today with a preview of what’s on, and Lorraine Wilson interviews Brian Cox and Nicole Ansari-Cox about their Fringe play.

Brown will give his pick of the month in every August edition of the Sunday National – and we’ll have plenty of articles alongside that.

Sunday National editor Roxanne Sorooshian said: “It’s great to have Edinburgh’s Festivals back to full strength.

“Keep up to date with all that’s going on with The National and Sunday National’s comprehensive coverage.

“Our arts critic Mark Brown will be bringing you news of all the hot tickets, as well as providing a flavour of the atmosphere in Edinburgh as visitors from home and all across the world flock to Scotland’s capital city.

The National:

“We’ll be there every day. It’s not to be missed!”

Keep an eye on the daily edition of The National, next week’s Sunday National and our website for the latest information on our Fringe special offer.

A subscription to The National’s website will also give you full access to our mobile app – where you can read our online articles and scroll through a digital edition of our paper.
