Join 20,000 people for this annual sell-out event and carry a Torch to shine a light on homelessness, helping raise over £50,000 for Social Bite projects in Edinburgh and across Scotland.
Enjoy a carnival atmosphere at the rebooted event, with a new start location at the Meadows presenting a feast of live Street Theatre, Fire Performers, Pipe Bands and Drummers to get celebrations started, before Vikings from Shetland’s South Mainland Up Helly Aa’ Jarl Squad lead the procession, to create a stunning river of fire through the capital’s historic Old Town.
A donation of £2 from each Torch sold (£20.00 inc. fees) and £1.50 from additional Procession Tickets (£7.50 inc. fees) will be donated to Social Bite and the event will see torch carrying revellers draw attention to the issue of homelessness and the important work being done to tackle it in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.
6pm – Entertainment begins at the Meadows
7pm – Torchlight Procession leaves The Meadows
8pm/8.30pm – Procession ends in city centre
