What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

Christmas Carols and Concerts in Edinburgh

St Giles Cathedral Edinburgh

Few things will evoke that special Christmas feeling more than beautiful, ambient Christmas music. We love a good traditional Christmas carol service or concert but couldn’t find a list of them all in one location – so we decided to put together one ourselves for December 2016! This post won’t include every single carol service and Christmas concert in Edinburgh, it’s just what we could find online. We hope this will be useful for you and that you get to enjoy some fabulous Christmas music this year!
