BE iconic

Start the New Year the Scottish way at the Ceilidh under the Castle.

Whirl or jig, fling or be flung under the watchful eye of Edinburgh Castle. Join hands with old friends and new to dance in the New Year with a full ceilidh band and plenty of local food and drink to keep you spinning all night.

This year’s jigs and reels will be brought to you by three smashing ceilidh bands: Sleekit Beasties, Skyte! and Cool Ceol Ceilidh Band.

At midnight, welcome in 2020 with a breath taking fireworks display, amidst the historic setting of the majestic Edinburgh Castle.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Ceilidh Under the Castle are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
