Enjoy Edinburgh Festival with Alan Boyd

Edinburgh is a wonderful city at any time but at festival time becomes something very special; the world’s largest festival of music, theatre, comedy, talks and events. There are hundreds of shows and events everyday from 10.00 am until after midnight plus all the buzz of a cosmopolitan city with a rich history and wide range of bars and restaurants.

Edinburgh Festival, particularly the fringe, is overwhelming if don't know your way around. Everybody will have there own interests and wish to go to different events and shows. As an experienced festival goer I will be on hand to help you get the most out of the experience.

On any day there will be over two hundred theatre, comedy and music events. These mostly last about an hour and so if you are very keen to can do 3 shows a day followed by late night cabaret. Equally you can spend time exploring the city and even do some country walking. It is up to everybody to pace themselves.

The plan costs £435 and includes

Single en-suite bedroom in an 8 person apartment for 7 nights.
A large kitchen and lounge for socialising and meals if you wish to eat in.
Breakfast supplies
An orientation walk on the first morning.
One joint visit to a show to launch you into the spirit of the festival.
If people want a break from festival, I will organise a couple of walks around the green edges of the city.

Getting accommodation in Edinburgh at festival time is difficult and usually very expensive. We have been fortunate to get an excellent deal from Napier University. Single en-suite rooms of hotel quality in an apartment for 8 people. Given the price of accommodation during festival time, this is excellent value. £100 pound deposit is required on booking with the balance payable in May.

The travel details will not be available until nearer the dates but the best way is by train from Kings Cross. This is faster and more comfortably than flying. We will coordinate to get a group booking when tickets become available. Based on last years prices the cost will be approximately £95.00 return.
