EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE STREET EVENTS

Production Management

Pre Squid experience includes seven years as Assistant Street Events Manager for the largest arts festival in the world. 

 

Producing the Fringe’s large scale, outdoor, street theatre events over two city central spaces: The Royal Mile and Mound Precinct. Playing host to many of the world's finest performers, this event sees an estimated one million visitors a year.


In this dynamic environment the role involved designing and implementing scheduling systems to programme over 500 performance artists into 4000 time slots, over 25 days. 

 

Experience with the Edinburgh Fringe includes project managing the design and build of a new city central box office - the Virgin Money Half Price Hut; the Hut was installed on The Mound each year. Management of communications between the suppliers, architects, the Box office team, The National Galleries, structural engineers and Edinburgh Trams was key to the success and delivery of this project. The site brought many design and installation challenges as The Mound is part of the gallery's roof. Tracy managed the budget, design and build. Access and technical challenges were overcome to great effect.
