The opening event of Edinburgh's Hogmanay 2014/15 is the spectacular Torchlight Procession.

The opening event of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 

A total sell-out each year, the Torchlight Procession is the start of three days of spectacular Edinburgh’s Hogmanay events. Last year’s event welcomed over 35,000 participants, joining the Up Helly Aa Vikings, massed pipes & drums and thousands of torch carriers as they illuminate the city from our start position of George IV Bridge to the viewing areas of Waterloo Place and Calton Hill. The Torchlight Procession fireworks finale can be viewed across the city and beyond.
