Events in Edinburgh


The Edinburgh Fringe Festival:

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the largest arts festival in the world. The Fringe is a truly open access festival where no one is denied entry, making it the largest platform on earth for creative freedom. In 2016 the Fringe 2016, spanned 25 days and featured 50,266 performances of 3,269 shows in 294 venues. In 2017 the event will run from 4th August until 28th August.

During this time accommodation in Edinburgh is scarce and expensive. An alternative is to book accommodation outside Edinburgh. The east coast of Fife has many hotels and bed and breakfast facilities ideal for use as a base for visiting Edinburgh. Easy access to the city is provided by the East Coast Railway Line and a regular bus service. Buses stop just yards from the Kingswood Hotel.

The Edinburgh International Festival Fireworks Concert:

The Edinburgh Festival 2017 comes to a close on Monday 28th August with a spectacular concert and firework display. Over 400,000 fireworks will provide a display set to live orchestral music played by the Scottish Chanber Orchestra. Tickets are available to get you into Princess Street Gardens for the concert but you do not have to buy tickets to view the Fireworks. The fireworks can be seen from any vantage point in which you can see the castle. On a clear night we can even see them across the water from The Kingswood Hotel. Concert starts at 9.30pm.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo:

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual series of military tattoos performed by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth and international military bands and artistic performance teams on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle each August as part of the Edinburgh Festival.

The Tattoo in 2017 will take place over the period 4-26 August with performances on Monday to Friday at 9.00pm and on Saturday at 7.30pm and 10.30pm. There is no performance on Sundays.

All last evening performances end with a firework display (weather permitting) but on the dates 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of August 2017 last evening performances will end with an extended firework display.

Edinburgh Hogmanay:

The Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party is the highlight of three days of spectacular events, live bands, torchlight procession, top stars and fireworks to welcome in 2018. Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street Party is one of the world’s greatest New Year celebrations. The firework display on a clear New Years Eve can be seen from The Kingswood Hotel and sometimes adds a bit of spectacle to our own Hogmanay celebrations.
