A total sell-out each year, the Torchlight Procession is the official start of three-days of spectacular Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 2015/16 events.
Last year’s event welcomed over 50,000 participants and spectators, joining the Up Helly Aa’ Vikings, massed pipes & drums and thousands of torch carriers as they illuminate the city from our start position on George IV Bridge to the finale viewing areas at Waterloo Place and Calton Hill. The Torchlight Procession fireworks finale can be viewed across the city and beyond!
