November has started; the days are getting shorter and colder but there is still plenty of reasons to get out and about in Edinburgh.
Let’s start the month by lighting up the sky! Come and enjoy the Annual Fireworks Extravaganza on Sunday 3rd November at George Watson’s Rugby Stadium. Due to its popularity there will be two shows held this year – the Blue Show at 4:30pm and the Red Show at 7:30pm.
The fireworks continue with the celebration of Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night, which takes place on the Tuesday 5th of November. During this night we celebrate the failure of the Gunpowder plot, the plot to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I. Remember, remember the 5th of November goes the saying and with a fireworks display like the annual Meadowbank display you’re not likely to forget in a hurry.
Meadowbank Sports Centre hosts the city’s biggest public fireworks show of the year. The fireworks start at 7.30pm, with pre-show entertainment from 6.30pm. Did you miss the closing of the festival; this is your chance to enjoy beautiful fireworks…
This month Scotland takes on two of the three best teams in the world in this year’s Autumn Rugby Tests at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium. Come and watch Scotland play against Japan on Saturday 9 November at 2.30pm, South Africa on Sunday 17 November at 3.00pm or Australia on Saturday 23 November at 6.00pm.
Previously…Scotland’s History Festival is in its third year and takes place from 13 – 30 of November. Keep an eye out for events being held all over Edinburgh. Enjoy storytelling, exhibitions, and great authors as well as exploring graveyards, dungeons, castles, streets and alleyways.
