Edinburgh Samhuinn Fire Festival, Parliament Square, 31st October 2013, 9-11pm (free event)
From the Beltane Fire Society
Once again we gather to celebrate Samhuinn, the Celtic New Year, with our unique festival event in the heart of Edinburgh’s atmospheric Old Town.
With drumming, dancing, voice and music, street theatre, captivating fire performance and stunning costumes, our performers take to the Royal Mile to usher in the change of seasons and welcome the dark of the year.
We invite you to join us in the revelry as Summer processes from Castle Hill, invaded by Winter attacking from below, culminating in a breathtaking battle at Parliament Square.
The event begins at 9pm.
There is also a Facebook event page.
