Evening Walking Tour of Edinburgh's Georgian Shadows

Friday 24 February - 25 March

Every Wednesday, Thursday Friday and Saturday 6pm

Starting from: Melville Monument, St Andrews Square

An enchanting event coming to Edinburgh this February will bring the city's Georgian New Town to life, celebrating its 250th birthday and Scotland’s 2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology. 

Edinburgh’s Georgian Shadows will offer a glimpse into the lives of the original residents, as projections and silhouette bring the Georgians back to life. The event forms a trail through the original Georgian New Town, from St Andrew Square to Charlotte Square. Visitors can admire the city's architectural treasures and look out for the Georgian characters as they explore.

In St Andrew Square a lumière display will tell the story of the New Town plan with a stunning digital fly-through recreating how it looked when it was first built. Edinburgh’s Georgian Shadows’ architectural lighting will also see six of the city’s most iconic historical buildings come to life in this  creative event telling the story of Edinburgh’s influential past.

Launching on 23 February and running until 26 March 2017, the event will officially kick off the events commemorating the 250th anniversary of James Craig’s plan for the New Town and will be a fascinating addition to the dark winter nights. Edinburgh’s classically inspired Georgian New Town is considered a masterpiece of city planning, and together with the Old Town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.  

Tickets £7.50 per person

The Medics' Reveal 2017

Saturday 25 March 2017, 19:30 - 23:00

£14 - Non Student

£12 - Student

The Medics' Reveal is a dance and variety show with a seductive twist in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT). The show is organised, produced and performed by medical students from the University of Edinburgh, and has quickly become one of the most anticipated events in Edinburgh's social scene.  

With 100% of our profits going to TCT, the show could not be for a better cause. Since the Medics' Reveal began 3 years ago, we've managed to raise over £33,000 for TCT, and this year we're aiming high, and hoping to smash our ambitious £12,000 target.

Every day 7 young people are diagnosed with cancer, but thankfully TCT are there to provide support, education and wonderful medical facilities to help these people through this unimaginably tough period. 

So be sure to get your tickets for an unforgettable show. Entrance to our after party at Opal Lounge are included in your ticket.
