Light up the night at the oldest ‘Knight Club’ in town

See Edinburgh Castle in a new light when it hosts the exclusive ‘Knight at the Castle’ after-hours event as part of Year of Young People 2018 celebrations
Tickets are on sale now for a brand new and exclusive after-hours music and entertainment event happening at Edinburgh Castle in October 2018.

‘Knight at the Castle’ is an 18-and-over event featuring young Scottish creative talent and offering a vibrant mix of activities, DJs and roaming performers, bars, street food and surprises. It is supported by the Year of Young People 2018 (YoYP 2018) event fund, managed by EventScotland, part of VisitScotland’s Events Directorate.

In 2018, Scotland puts its young people in the spotlight, celebrating their talents and contributions and creating new opportunities for them to shine. A year-long programme of events and activities will give young people in Scotland the opportunity to show the world what they are made of.

Knight at the Castle will feature a unique festival atmosphere and neon theme, which will bathe the iconic attraction in a range of kaleidoscopic colours for one night only on Friday 5th October from 7-10pm. This is the first time Historic Environment Scotland (HES) has organised an event of its kind at the castle.
