Things are getting very exciting here in slightly drizzly Edinburgh: Repository Fringe 2011 begins tomorrow!


The final programme is now available to view or download and we have a fantastic and busy line up of speakers, round tables and pecha kucha’s!

If you are speaking and are happy to share your presentation via the Repository Fringe website please remember to email a copy or link to it to the normal email address:

Sharing Repository Fringe 2011: A Call for Help!

If you are bringing your laptop, smart phone or camera with you there are a few things we would love your help with:

  • If you are  taking pictures of the event please consider sharing them via the Repository Fringe 2011 Flickr Group.
  • If you are tweeting and blogging about the event please use the tag: #rfringe11.
  • If you have a smartphone and fancy creating SoundCloud clips around the event please include the word “Fringe” and the #rfringe11 tag in the title so that we can find them and they can also be included on the Edinburgh Festival Sounds of Fringe map!

We will be recording high resolution video of all presentations and Pecha Kucha sessions and will make these available as soon as possible after the event. We will be streaming comments and tweets around the event via CoverItLive and we hope to also stream lower resolution video via UStream. We will also be live blogging all of the sessions here on the Repository Fringe website and would welcome your comments or guest posts.

Travel and Weather
If you are travelling to Edinburgh tonight you may wish to bring a light rainproof jacket but otherwise the forecast is for warm, humid but hopefully rain-free Repository Fringe days.

We have added lots of information about the venue, nearby bus stops, Taxis, etc. over on our location and travel pages which should help you find your way through the city.

Bear in mind that Edinburgh is busier at this time of year so do expect buses and walks to take a little longer than advertised and, in a few places, you may encounter whole new temporary buildings on your route!

And finally…

We have set up a special hashtag for social arrangements at this year’s event.  If you tweet with or search for the tag #rf11social you will find discussions of what to do this evening (Tuesday) and which shows might be fun to jointly head to. If you need a little inspiration have a look at our Entertainment and Food & Drink pages.

The Open Access Monitor project is even offering free drinks for any Repository Fringe attendee who takes part in their beta test!
