BE a trailblazer

Blaze through the city accompanied by pipers and drummers, fire and fanfare and forge a river of light through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. A spectacular and unforgettable family friendly event culminating in the historic Holyrood Park.

On reaching the park, you will come together with your fellow torchbearers to form an image of two people shaking hands, which will be captured from the air and broadcast around the world!

You must have a ticket to take part in the Torchlight Procession in partnership with VisitScotland.

50p from every ticket bought goes to OneCity Trust, fighting inequality and exclusion in the City of Edinburgh.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Torchlight Procession in partnership with Visit Scotland are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
