Edinburgh’s Festival crowds basked in the warmest temperature of the year, with many outdoor venues making up for low attendances during last week’s wet weather.

Among those enjoying the sun between shows at the Stand was comedian JoJo Sutherland (pictured above in St Andrew Square).

The crowds were also out on the Meadows where on Friday there will be a horsebox in Middle Meadow Walk to offer visitors a chance of winning exclusive prizes for the Caledonian Brewery and tickets to Musselburgh races next month.

Sarah Montgomery, senior operations and commercial manager at Musselburgh Racecourse, is a big fan of the Edinburgh Fringe.

She said: “We are extremely excited to be able to join in with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year.”

Caledonian Raceday features seven flat races including the £20,000 Caledonian Cup and two harness races, as well as live music.

Andy Mitchell, marketing manager at Caledonian Brewery said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Musselburgh Racecourse once again. The race day is always a fantastic experience with an enjoyable atmosphere – and what better way to kick-start the much loved race day than at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.”
