No trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is complete without a meander along the Royal Mile – the stretch of road where the great and good (and sometimes bad) assemble to hand out flyers, lie on the floor, dance, sing, juggle, wave and all manner of other things, in the name of promotion.

If you're heading to the festival this year and fancy skipping the Mile, or you're not going and want to know what all the fuss is about, take a look at our video below where we take a stroll and have a chat to some of the weird and wonderful people there this year.
