Every August, the Edinburgh International Festival transforms one of the world's most beautiful cities, presenting three exhilarating weeks of the finest creators and performers from the worlds of the arts - for everyone.
Edinburgh's six major theatres and concert halls, a few smaller venues and often some unconventional ones too, come alive with the best classical music, theatre, opera, dance and visual art from around the globe.
The atmosphere in the city is something special. The Daily Telegraph said - 'not just the most thrilling, beguiling, preposterously enjoyable place on Earth; it is also wonderfully addictive.' Or as The Spectator suggested, you can sleep in September'.
Outside the buzz of those three weeks the Festival has a year-round programme of education and outreach work, aimed at all ages from primary school pupils to adults.
