Edinburgh hotel offers free Fringe accommodation to a performer

...and poster firm offers £1,000 marketing bursaries

An Edinburgh hotel is offering one Fringe comedian two weeks’ free accommodation during the festival, as long as they make some promotional videos while they are there.

The three-star Point A Hotel near Haymarket is running a competition to find a comic, or other performer, who can provide eight to ten social media clips during their stay.

And in return they will get bed-and-breakfast accommodation from August 4 to 18. The prize is worth around £4,000 as even outside of the Fringe dates rooms are around £200 a night.

Entrants must make a 30-second clip saying why they should be chosen and either email in to partnerships@pointahotels.com or post it on Instagram and tag @pointahotels

Closing date is July 8 and more details are here.

The bursaries are available to registered Fringe shows playing in venues with capacities of 200 or below, and include help designing posters and flyers, printing costs, and outdoor advertising spaces.  The closing date is also July 8 and more info is available here.
