In Historic Scotland’s largest event of 2010, hundreds of performers travelled from all over Britain to the impressive military fortification of Fort George.

Commencing with a grand parade into the central arena, the day unfolded with a series of exciting, informative, impressive and interactive shows, displays and presentations covering everything from the marching soldiers of the Roman period to the fighting troops of the twentieth century.

Radio Forth on the Fringe

Radio Forth on the Fringe played to a sell out Playhouse Theatre on Saturday night - bringing together the very best the Edinburgh Festival Fringe has to offer.

This is the third year I have photographed the show for Radio Forth and the new venue added to the fantastic atmosphere.

Scottish singer KT Tunstall topped the bill which featured comedians such as Craig Hill, Phil Kay, Stephen K Amos and Reginal D Hunter. Britain's Got Talent dancers Flawless joined Drags Aloud and The Boy With Tape on his Face in the 3 and a half hour show hosted by Forth One DJ's Boogie and Arlene.

See the HIGHLIGHTS on my FACEBOOK PAGE or all the photos on the Forth One site here.
