What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

What’s On In Edinburgh – March 2020

After battling a number of storms in the last month, we are hoping for a calmer March, but we can certainly say 2020 is bringing an energy to Edinburgh! There’s lots to do in Edinburgh this March, so keep reading to find out more…

We are just beginning to see the first signs of spring, with the first buds popping up around town and snowdrops fully in bloom at the Royal Botanic Gardens. Daily walks are being held from 11:00am until Sunday 8th March. And as the gardens are celebrating their 350th birthday they are hosting a variety of events to celebrate so do keep an eye out.

March 2020

Our highlight of March is the Tyrannosaurs exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland. The cutting edge exhibition has interactive displays, augmented reality and fossils from Australia, bringing the most feared and revered of all dinosaurs to Edinburgh, challenging our preconceptions about these ferocious predators.

Don’t forget this month is all about women as we celebrate international women’s day and mother’s day. Make sure the women in your life feel empowered and appreciated!
