Other unqiue venues across the city include National Museum of Scotland, former Royal Dick Vet School - Summerhall and George Heriot’s School.

As well as all of these there will be hundreds of free shows in bars and clubs around the city and a variety of talented street performers on the Virgin Money Street Events spaces on The Mound and The Royal Mile.
