While there are countless lists every year giving you top tips for the Edinburgh Festivals, who better to recommend what you should be doing than those who are literally there year after year. In our Edinburgh feature, we get big names to tell us what they're planning to see, where they want to eat and what to do of an evening. Here, musical theatre legend Claire Sweeney gives her Fringe tips.

Don't miss this

I LOVED the very sassy musical Six at the Underbelly, it's taking the Fringe by storm Get a ticket before it sells out!

Best spot for a bite to eat:

Urban Angel on Hanover Street for breakfast and I like to treat myself to dinner at the Witchery, just near the castle at the top of the Royal Mile.

Great call for an evening out:

See a show at the Playhouse followed by drinks and dancing at brilliant cabaret spot CC Blooms at Greenside Place until the wee hours!

Cheeky plug for your show:

Don't Tell Me Not To Fly is a show all about being female. Great show tunes, anecdotes and funny stories. You can come four times and see four different ages, lifestyles and four different people. Celebrating musical theatre and females.
