1) Fringe Fanatic?
Mimetic 2013 is a sneak peak at this year's Edinburgh Fringe line up. Last year's festival included the winner of the 2012 Fosters Comedy Award, two of The List's 10 best reviewed shows at the Fringe and even cult Edinburgh hit Boris and Sergey's Puppet Cabaret (who are back this year!). So come along and see the hits of the Edinburgh Fringe before they happen and without the train fare!

2) Family to entertain?
Head to Mimetic for a great selection of alternative children's shows. Fuelled by imagination and invention, this year's line up of family shows promises something for every member of the family.

3) Comedy Fan?
If you like a laugh, comedy gurus Such Small Portions are presenting their picks of this year's Fringe, From Luisa Omeilan's girl power to Tony Law's surreal stylings, and we have comedy cabaret acts coming out of our ears. Come down for a drink at our well stocked bar and get your giggle on.

4) On a Budget?
Tickets from as little as £8 per show. Mimetic 2013 presents 63 shows, all at super affordable prices! Not only are the tickets a great bargain, each week we're giving away tickets to two lucky winners. Get onto Twitter @fingerinthepie to find out how you could win.

5) Live on the Wild Side?
Come and experience the wilder side of performance. If you're into cross dressing, psychics or sock puppets, we have them all and more in the most eclectic line up of theatre, puppetry and cabaret in the country. If you like things dark and daft, this is the festival for you.
