Festival fireworks – Monday 31st August

Edinburgh International Fireworks 2012 by Grant Ritchie: http://photosofedinburgh.wordpress.com/The fiery finale to the Edinburgh International Festival will be held on Monday 31st August at 9.30pm in Princes Street Gardens.

Set against the magnificent backdrop of Edinburgh’s iconic Castle, the evening brings together the stirring playing of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra with an incredible concert-long fireworks display, specially choreographed to the music.

You can see the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert from Inverleith Park where they have a free family viewing area, a mile to the north of the City Centre. This area is ideal for family’s with young children as it is less busy. It has good views of the castle and a live video link and sound system to capture the Concert in the Gardens that accompanies the fireworks display. It’s not as exciting as being up close, under the castle, but you can avoid the uptown crush of Princes Street. Get there earlyish – proceedings start at 7pm .

Wherever you are in Edinburgh, join in and hear the music live by tuning into Forth 1 97.3 from 9.00pm.
