The Festival on EdinburghReportage
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Whether you are a residents or a visitor to Edinburgh you are encouraged to show some love for the city’s parks as the nation prepares to celebrate its green spaces.
Environment Convener, Councillor Lesley Hinds, said: “We have a beautiful array of parks here in Edinburgh, ranging from small residential spots like Montgomery Street Park to world famous landmarks, such as Calton Hill.
We are running out of time to do any more Fringe previews than we have already done – so if you have a show you absolutely have to tell us about then use our Submit your Story feature by clicking here. You can add some photos and give us an idea of what your show is about and why people should attend.
We interviewed the writer and the main character from Broken Dolls yesterday morning and you can watch that here
Almost time for the festivals to begin but we are already looking forward to the Virgin Money Fireworks on 31 August 2014.
Share your Festival moments with us whether they are written thoughts on your days at the Edinburgh Festival, some photos or a bit of video. If you are in a show or you are off to watch a show then please use our EdinburghReportage Edinburgh Festivals storyboard to tell us your story. What did you think of the show? Tell us on video and upload to our site.
