Three recommended shows to see on Monday 28 Aug…

The Giant Jam Sandwich | Pleasance Courtyard | 10.20am
We kick off our final Three To See of Edinburgh Festival 2017 with this “talented trio of actor-musicians who expertly multi-role a whole village of characters”. Says our reviewer: “This show had a room full of under-fives enthralled for an hour, which is no small feat”.

Rachel Parris: Keynote | Pleasance Dome | 8.20pm
The set up: “Having been invited to go back to her school as a guest speaker, Rachel Parris is trying to figure out what advice she can give to the next generation”. Concludes our reviewer: “Naturally funny and I reckon she’s a pretty good role model too”.

Edinburgh International Festival Fireworks Concert | Princes Street Gardens | 9.00pm (pictured)
The traditional finale to Edinburgh’s festival month from the Edinburgh International Festival. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra play beneath Edinburgh Castle as the fireworks light up the skies above. Plus this year the proceedings begin with Scottish folk singer Karen Matheson performing traditional Scottish tunes – and a new work from Capercaillie founder Donald Shaw – with the SCO.
