Anti Slavery Day 18th October

October 15th, 2012 · No Comments · edinburgh

Here at Edinburgh Festival Apartments we always like to know what is going on and what celebration days there are coming up as we get all kinds of people staying in our Edinburgh Apartments.

So it came as a huge surprise when referring to Google we found Anti Slavery Day !

The amazing thing is that we all think that slavery is a thing of the past however in many parts of the world it is still rife. It’s still happening in places like Africa,South Asia, Europe and Latin America.

Slavery records date back to the fifth century BC many people being locked in chains around their neck and ankles, this brings a much different picture nowadays especially after reading 50 shades!

So when did we ‘stop’ slavery?

The Abolition of the Slave Trade Act was finally passed in 1807 and all slaves were freed over the next twenty years.

How disappointing then that in the 21st century we need a day like this!

It really makes you think especially when here at Edinburgh Festival Apartments we spend all our time organising holidays and large groups coming to Edinburgh Apartments to party and have a good time, the nearest we get to slaves in our environment are our hunky butlers hired for an hour to serve drinks sometimes wearing nothing but a kilt.

We are so lucky here that all our time is spent looking for people to enjoy themselves whether its families coming to stay in Edinburgh Apartments like 18g with three bedrooms and plenty of space for everyone to have dinner or large groups of girls coming to stay in our Hen Party Edinburgh Townhouse.

We have something to suit everyone – its very easy all you have to do is look at our Festival Apartments or Apartments Edinburgh select the dates you require and the number of people and everything we have available will be there for you to see.

There are some really great new Edinburgh Apartments in the Royal Mile and our fabulous party apartments ideal for Edinburgh Hen Party apartment weekends and Edinburgh Stag Party apartments weekends.
