Countdown to the Festivals!

The sun is out, the days are longer, chilly mornings are behind us and the good old Edinburgh Festival season is about to burst into life for its 62nd year!

Calling all Edinburgh Festival goers! It is now time to book up your accommodation and get your hands on 2008’s official Edinburgh Festival programme -  sizzling hot off the press! Pre-order your programme now, ready for its release on June 5th! See the official Fringe website for orders and news.


Complete with venue guide and map, the programme is the best way to navigate the city and to consider the viability of various shows and their host venues. This guide will help you to steer clear of  booking shows that are close together time-wise and are across the city from one another, distance-wise. Even if you are an Olympic sprinter or have bionic legs like the Six Million Dollar Man, you would struggle negotiating the busy streets of Edinburgh city centre (particularly during Festival season).


Don’t forget ‘Silver Screen’ fans, the Edinburgh International Film Festival is not part of the big August event any more, it is actually set for 18 June in 2008. Check out the official website for listings.


We hope you enjoy sharing our experiences as much as we did experiencing them! We look forward to reading all about yours too!



Happy festival planning!
