Be with your clan this Hogmanay!

8th November

Hogmanay is best spent shared with your nearest and dearest, so be together at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay!

No one else in the world celebrates the New Year like we do in Scotland, so read on to find out how you and your loved ones can get involved with the festivities, whatever age you are.

Torchlight Procession in partnership with VisitScotland

Blaze through the streets of Edinburgh’s Old Town or simply be a spectator at our Torchlight Procession on 30.12.19. A spectacular and unforgettable family-friendly event culminating in the iconic Holyrood Park.

Bairns Afore

Our smash hit Bairns Afore event is back again this year, giving children and families the opportunity to share in the Hogmanay party experience, complete with a spectacular firework display over Edinburgh Castle, all before 6PM. Join heroes of children’s TV, Dick and Dom, as they battle it out behind the decks to see whose tunes are the best!


Loony Dook

Looking to start 2020 with some fresh air and the silliest of all Hogmanay traditions? Pop down to South Queensferry on 01.01.20 for the Loony Dook. A great day out as a spectator or, if you’re feeling particularly daring, even a dooker! Either way it’s a great day out for the whole family.

First Footers Family Ceilidh

Our First Footers Family Ceilidh is a FREE, family-friendly event that’ll have you jigging into 2020 with your best foot forward.

Whatever you’re planning this New Year, BE together at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay!
