I'd emailed The Fringe in November 2011 asking what the chances were of them doing a roadshow in Cardiff and sending details of potentially interested parties. Response was friendly but "don't have the budget" Then an email in Nov 2012 said a Roadshow was coming to Cardiff! Just had an email in from Edinburgh Fringe with the following info... Isn't it great to know they sat up and listened:-)
Now that 2013 is here, we’re hitting the road to bring information about the Fringe to a town near you. Our roadshows are a great opportunity to meet Society staff, venue managers and other Fringe experts, and get lots of details about the festival. We are also happy to give you one-to-one advice.
