Fringe Guru is an established independent cultural website, dedicated to impartial coverage of fringe festivals around the UK. We were founded in Edinburgh in 2007, and set up an outpost in Brighton in 2008. We're also active in Buxton and London, and we're expanding our horizons further as time goes on.
We're owned and run by a team of Fringe enthusiasts, principally based in Scotland. Our co-founders are Richard Stamp, our editor and lead reviewer, and David Court, who looks after the website and manages the technical side. Craig Thomson is responsible for guarding our ethical standards. During the Edinburgh Fringe, we work with a team of a dozen or so reviewers.
Our ethos is to aim for selective quality coverage, in preference to completism or rapid growth. We'll never be the largest reviewer, but we hope we'll earn your trust. We have no news agenda to maintain and no external shareholders to satisfy – so we're free to do what we think is best, to inform the public and support the work we love.
The Fringe Guru website is run by Fringe Guru Ltd, a company registered in Scotland, number SC360286. As well as this website, we're also the company behind the iFringe mobile app.

Do you want to contact us by post?
We prefer to receive press releases by email. That's because our team is split between Edinburgh, Brighton and York, and some of us travel from place to place depending on what we're covering at the time. If you do have something you'd like to send us, please email us first, and we'll give you a specific address based on who's best-placed to read it.
