About

In 2013 we launched the Stirling Fringe Festival - the city’s biggest and most successful arts festival. After three years we’ve re-launched as The Shindig - the Best Wee Party in Scotland and taken up residency at the Old Town Jail. Over three days the jail yard will house a performance marquee, acoustic zone yurt and an open air music stage, all playing host to an eclectic variety of events. From live music and comedy, to children’s storytelling, to ceilidhs, pipe bands and beer tastings. Not to mention a cornucopia of street performers, street food from around the world. And with many of the events completely free of charge this really will be the Best Wee Party in Scotland.
