About Essential Edinburgh: Grab a Great Time Grabber Machine

Great times are ready and waiting to be grabbed in Edinburgh City Centre this week, thanks to ‘Grab a Great Time’, Essential Edinburgh’s latest activation – an arcade ‘grabber’ machine installed in the middle of Castle Street.

Live from Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd June, in the heart of the city’s Business Improvement District, the bespoke ‘grabber’ machine is packed with prizes and offers from businesses across the city centre, giving the people of Edinburgh the chance to literally grab a great time.

From food and drink to fashion, beauty and homeware, hundreds of prizes from businesses across the city centre will be loaded into the machine. To play, participants just need to follow @EdinCityCentre on a social channel of their choice and bring their best joystick skills.

On Thursday 20th, activity will be live between 12noon and 6.30pm and from 10am to 4pm on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd. So whether you’ll be late night shopping, popping out on your lunch break or are coming into the city with family and friends on Saturday, there’s opportunity for all to join in the fun.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Essential Edinburgh: Grab a Great Time Grabber Machine are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
