Still plenty to look forward to !!!

So, that’s it..with the sound of the festival fireworks banging and sparkling away over the top of the castle last night, the 2017 festival has come to an end….and it’s been such a fantastic year. I have LOVED it – we enjoyed all the circus on the meadows, the brilliant kids shows, the BBC tent activities and of course the rather delicious hot donut stall in George square gardens (please let that come back next year) !!!

But, don’t despair, there is still plenty going on and in fact this weekend is packed with a plethora of events and lots more festival fun to be had !! Including Gorgie City Farm Festival, this Saturday the 2nd (more on that in a post tomorrow), the Tea in the Park event at Braidburn Valley Park, also on Saturday 2nd from 2pm which includes duck racing, music and new for this year a dog show too !!!

Mela festival 29th/30th August 2015

It’s been a busy August and festival season is still going strong with the fantastic Edinburgh Mela Festival happening this weekend at Leith Links on the 29th and 30th August…

It is a big and bright festival which brings us lots of dancing, world music, a global food village and of course the Mela kidzone

Children of all ages are set to ‘go bananas’ at this year’s Mela Kidzone inspired by the monkey gods of Asia.

The dedicated Kidzone has a host of fantastic interactive dance workshops, arts and crafts activities and live performances – perfect entertainment for your little monkeys.

Children under 12 go free to the Mela… if you get your adult tickets early its £4 otherwise its £5 on the day…
