Richard’s back on the trail again chasing the Barstar of the day in our tribute to the unsung heroes who keep us refreshed during the Festival Fringe. Each venue is recommended by the previous Barstar. We’re starting the season at The Mitre, where Lisa might have to deal with the additional spirit of Bishop John Spottiswood who once owned the site.
