Fancy a Fringe Freebie? Then spot the pigeon!

There is no better excuse to step into the unknown than if you can do it for free. Well with our High Street Fringe Voucher giveaway, you have the perfect excuse to treat yourself.

During the month of August the Virgin Money Street Events Team will be helping us enhance your Fringe experience by giving away twenty lots of £25 worth of Fringe Vouchers at the Virgin Money Street Events on the Royal Mile. To be in with a chance of winning you’ll need to follow us on twitter at @VirginMoney

Here’s how it works

  • Every day between 6 August to 10 August and 13 August to 17 August a Virgin Money Street Team Member will situate themselves somewhere on the High Street at a different time each day.
  • We will tweet out their whereabouts using a clue, or perhaps a picture, and the first two people that get to them and shout the passphrase “SPOT THE PIGEON!” will each win a £25 Voucher.
  • If there is a tie breaker situation we will produce a deck of cards and ask the tie breakers to pick a card; highest card wins (Aces are low).

“Why spot the pigeon?” we hear you ask, well to help you pin point the correct person they will be holding aloft a pigeon… No not a live one, it will be one of the pigeons you can see all around the city as part of the new Fringe Festival branding.  The difference with this pigeon is that it will be on top of a Virgin Money umbrella… of course.

The vouchers can be used to buy official Edinburgh Fringe merchandise from the Fringe Shop on the High Street or can be used to purchase tickets online or at the Fringe Box Office on the High Street. You can also use the vouchers at the Virgin Money Half Price Hut which gives you the opportunity to double your money.
