For the first time in more than a decade I’m skipping Edinburgh in August with its international, fringe, and book festivals. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The fringe grows ever more unwieldy, accommodation is scarce and expensive, and I’ve gained a week to explore more destinations in the UK or overseas.
But now I’m feeling a twinge of regret. Two days ago when I overheard a colleague commission a review of Glasgow GP and The BMJ‘s award winning columnist Margaret McCartney, who makes her festival stand-up debut this year.
