Count down to the Edinburgh Festival

June 26th, 2012 · No Comments · edinburgh

The Edinburgh International Festival is looming towards us now and enquiries for accommodation are endless. We have comedians, musicians, dancers, acrobats, actors and actresses all looking for apartments in Edinburgh not to mention all the families and groups looking to come here for their holidays.

The Edinburgh Film Festivalstarts this week which brings an unusual mix of films on at all different times of day and night in very obscure venues. We have a group of film buffs staying in our 31 Grove Street Edinburgh Apartment which is just a stones throw away from the Cineworld film house which has an amazing range on films going on – too many to choose. The new Scottish film Brave is showing at The Festival Theatre which is just down the road from our 2 bedroom Edinburgh apartment in Fishmarket Close which is ideal for two couples.

Brave is a grand adventure full of heart with memorable characters and Pixar humour. Its set in the mysterious Highlands of Scotland with the leading character, headstrong Merida who is a skilled archer and the impetuous daughter of King Fergus played by Billy Connolly.

I am going to see 7 Days in Havana  at a special screening in the Edinburgh Caves this Wednesday where a free Mojito is included in the £5 entrance price!

7 Days in Havana is a film created to capture the vibrancy of contemporary Havana — a portrait of an eclectic city, young and forward thinking. The film consists of 7 chapters combined into one feature length film, each directed by internationally acclaimed directors. The film features a directorial debut from Benicio Del Toro (The Usual Suspects, Traffic), a film from award-winning director Gaspar Noe (Enter The Void), with starring roles from Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds).

Grease “singalong” is on show at The Filmhouse on Saturday 21st July – what a great fun day out for our Hen party staying at our 18G Edinburgh apartment or even the larger group of 20 girls staying at our Lothain Edinburgh Apartment.

The Jazz festival kicks off on the July 20th with the fabulous Jazz Mardi Gras in the Grass market which is just a five minute walk for our group of Jazz artists staying in our fabulous city centre George IV Residence Edinburgh apartment. We love the Jazz festival here are Festival Apartments and a couple of acts to look out for are Edinburgh’s very own Niki King playing at The Spiegeltent -  Niki King & The Elements Niki King & The Elements Teatro Spiegeltent, 10pm, £15 – she is a class act. Also look out for Das Contras at The Jazz Bar on Chambers Street. They are a really cool, funky, jazz, ska band from Fife. This is a great little venue just round the corner from our Royal Mile Edinburgh apartments, its always open late and always got something unique on.

The world famous Military Tattoo starts on the 3rd of August  with people ascending on the city of every part of the globe. Our luxury Edinburgh Townhouse is already booked for most of August however we do have a some dates but they are filling up fast.  This is a great house that has seven bedrooms and bathrooms so its ideal for large mixed groups looking to get ready to go out all at the same time. It also has a fabulous lounge with a great big dining table and a bar area to have your own cocktail demonstration.

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival runs along side it. This has now become the worlds largest arts festival with over 40,000 performances and more than 2500 shows packed into over 250 venues across the city – who all need somewhere to sleep which is why our phones are Edinburgh Festival Apartments are so busy – so please be patient with us!

From the 9th of August we have the Edinburgh International Festival which is three weeks for exhilarating shows of the very best in classical music, dance, opera and theatre.

From the 11th of August we have the Edinburgh Book Festival which takes place at George Square just 5 minutes from our Edinburgh  Lothian Apartment.The book festival is the largest celebration of the written word in the world bringing entertainment and inspiration to Edinburgh- where top-class writers discuss words and ideas with fellow writers, thinkers and most importantly, you. David Walliams is coming this year to do personal signings and readings of his new book Gangsta Granny on the 27th August so make a note of the date ladies.

With so much going on all summer its no suprise everyone wants to come here for a vibrant city break full of things to do :-) Its just a pity we cant organise the weather as well as our Festivals!
