Winter Wonders Inline

9th December: Festive Family Day 12 noon–4 pm

Come in from the cold and enjoy all things wintry and wonderful with a fantastic showcase of talks, storytelling, films and exhibits. The RSE have lined up family-friendly talks from amazing speakers and got some hands-on activities too. If you want to know more about ice and snow, cold water coral reefs, Northern lights, winter wildlife or polar research – then this is the event for you.

When you want to ‘chill out’, you can settle back for screenings of specially selected seasonal films. And they've made it even more perfect by opening up the Festival café when you can warm up with a mince pie, hot chocolate or mulled wine.

10th December: Festive Guided Room Tours 10 am–2 pm

Step back in time as the ‘Victorian’ guide introduces you to the wonderful rooms of the RSE building. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear more about the history and secrets from the rooms of one of Edinburgh’s grandest buildings.

It’s all free and there’s no need to book for either day – just turn up and experience a warm RSE welcome.

This event is part of the Doors of Advent – Edinburgh’s Christmas programme.
