  • The Magnets - After several past visits to Edinburgh, The Magnets return with their unique brand of vocal wizardry on the Udderbelly stage throughout August. Perhaps one of the most talented vocal groups around, The Magnets provide every bit of music you hear, ranging from the lyrics and the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ right down to the cymbal crashes and pulsing beats. Vocal acrobatics at their best. This clip is a bit of ‘best of’ with a cameo by none other than Geri Halliwell.

  • Sticks, stones, broken bones - From Montreal, Jeff Achtem transforms bits of junk into surreal shadow puppets. Flying chickens, brain transplants and sneaky ninjas! In each shadow puppet scene, the audience watches the visual transformation of household junk into shadow puppet cartoons. They’ve been causing quite a stir at this year’s festival.

  • The Penny Dreadfuls – Another act returning to Edinburgh this year are the comic collective The Penny Dreadfuls with their superbly inventive brand of Victorian comedy. The group’s members - Humphrey Ker, David Reed and Thom Tuck, who together perform narrative and sketch comedy for the stage and radio - are premiering their fifth live show at the festival. It’s already proved a success with the critics, with many crediting the comics with being the Monty Pythons of 2010. High praise indeed.

  • Meanwhile, down in the Woods– Yes, I have brought us back south, but Edinburgh will end on a bang and so should we, returning to London ready for the next adventure. And what better than the glorious production of Into the Woods over at Regent's Park. With a stellar lead line-up and a slick ensemble, all supported by one of the best orchestras in town, this show is not to missed. Grab your picnic blanket and head over to the park before it’s too late.
