Updated: 30 March 2016
Are you as desperate for the spring to kick in as we are? Celebrate the death of the winter and the birth of the summer by casting off the darkness and celebrating the light on one of the most magical nights of the year! Join hundreds of performers and thousands of revellers as they come together at the Beltane Fire Festival in Edinburgh for the spectacle of the elemental story of birth and rebirth and the eternal battle of seasons. You will be able to watch a modern interpretation of the ancient fertility festival, as played out with fire, drums, pyrotechnics, and a procession. There are multiple points of focus around the public parkland on Calton Hill, where the event is located, for you to enjoy a variety of fire performances and incredible views across the night-time cityscapes of Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. Come along to this immersive fire festival and watch the procession bring the hill to life.

📅 Saturday 30 April 2016, 8PM – 1.30AM
