Yipee ! Yes, its one of my all time favourite venues at the Edinburgh festival and it’s returning in all of its glory…the green green grass will be laid out soon and the pink and blue tents will be traveling over. It is a great place to hang out, with deck chairs, food stalls, a giant tv screen and lots of live music too … As ever, they have a wide range of events this year including some great free family events too …I imagine like previous years they will be doing family friendly weekends…keep an eye out on their facebook page for more regular information about events – they are very good at updating daily during the festival about what’s going on in the space.
Currently there are a few family events that look good and you can already apply for tickets in the ballot system (if you miss out, don’t be disheartened as there are tickets released on the day of events at the venue too…). They have just updated the tickets page and its much easier to see whats on and to apply – for the family events click here.
- So far…the stargazing live event with Mark Thompson and his sidekick Captain Gravity looks exciting – Friday 7th August 5.30pm – children can learn about the mysteries of space whilst launching rockets and making comets.
- As does Swashbuckle live on Saturday 8th August at 10.30 and 12.30….where Gem searches for her hidden jewels on a desert island and she’ll need the help of all the Swashbucklers in the audience if she’s to find them before the naughty pirate who is also digging for treasure.
