What’s on in August 2017 in Edinburgh?

standard life opening event edinburgh festival

August is here and so is THE Festival – the highlight of the Dickins year! There are thousands of shows, exhibitions and performances to choose from and the city will never be as alive as during the month of August. It’s a spectacle that we think everybody should experience at least once – we’re so lucky to get to experience it every year! So get down to St Andrew Square for the yearly Standard Life Opening Event (4-5th), enjoy brilliant shows to your heart’s content and finish off a fabulous month with the Festival Fireworks Concert (28th) against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. We can’t wait!!
