Don't miss the opening event of Edinburgh's Hogmanay 2018/19, the spectacular Torchlight Procession on 30th December.
About Torchlight Procession
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Born of the Viking tradition, Edinburgh’s Torchlight Procession has become famous around the world as one of the first images of the impending change to a new year and the beginning of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations.
The Procession returns to its new route down the Royal Mile, starting from three different points, High Street, South Bridge and North Bridge, winding between Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament to reach Holyrood Park.
In Holyrood Park, torchbearers will form the distinctive outline of Scotland and at its heart, and marking the end of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018, 14 wicker sculptures created as part of the #ScotArt youth engagement project, will come together to form a heart-shape symbolically representing a collective national youth voice.
50p from every ticket bought goes to One City Trust, fighting inequality and exclusion in the City of Edinburgh.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Torchlight Procession are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
