TER Edinburgh's Christmas 1

Today at Edinburgh’s Christmas you can get a free shot on any of the rides except Santa’s Grotto if you are a twin, triplet, quadruplet, quintuplet or sextuplet. You have to bring along at least one sibling and a form of ID. Tickets will be given to all matching siblings.


From today until 30 December there is an art competition running at the Museum on Chambers Street. For all ages this is a competition where you draw what you see in the museum.

Be inspired by the objects in the museum and get drawing.

Take part in our popular annual art event suitable for all ages and abilities. Basic materials and lots of encouragement provided. You are welcome to bring your own materials if you prefer.

If you are now suffering from cabin fever and needing to get out away from all the leftover turkey then you could go and see a film at The Cameo.

Our recommendation is showing only once today at 16.45 and it is the great Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey which has been restored by the British Film Institute. HAL will no doubt be as creepy as ever, though this is a certificate U.
