EVENT – Edinburgh Twestival, 7.30pm 25th March

Edinburgh event

The Edinburgh Twestival is taking place this Thursday in Edinburgh at the new hot venue in town, Ghillie Dhu .

The Edinburgh event is part of the a number of fund raising nights taking place all over the world as part of Twestival Global with all proceeds going to Concern Worldwide.

You don’t need to be a user of twitter to come along, it is just organised by those who do.   You don’t even have to know how to use the twitter website, but your presence at the event would be greatly appreciated.

Music sets will be from Edinburgh-based Idlewild, indie bands Mitchell Museum, Pose Victorious and Shooting Stansfield.   DJ George Wallace will also be playing a set.

If music isn’t your thing, there will be lots of other things to do on the night thanks to local businesses donating their services or product.  There will be whisky tasting, salon ‘pamper packages,’ a magician, a raffle (with excellent prizes), a duck pond, where you pay to hook a duck and have a chance to win something special.   There will also  be special Twestival cupcakes supplied by Cupcake and Ribbons and other cakey goodness from the fabulous Moo Cafeteria.

A large screen will be projecting the latest Edinburgh Twestival related tweets.  People will be tweeting what they’re up to, photos from the night and saying hello to each other by using the hashtag #edtwestival.  If you can’t make the event, but wish to follow what’s happening, you can do so on twitter and still make a donation.

What is the cost of this event?    A ticket is only £8 with every penny going to charities in South America, India, Africa and Haiti.  If you need any more information or have questions about this event, please drop us an email. 

You can follow the official Edinburgh Twestival blog and buy your tickets here.  There is also a facebook group for the event.

Edinburgh Spotlight has been lending a hand in preparation for this event and will both be in attendance on the night and would love to meet some of our readers.

Hope to see you there!
