Hi, I'm Ildiko

Welcome to the Weekend Enthusiast! A collection of travel, lifestyle, restaurant reviews and home of the Edinburgh Enthusiast. 

What to do this weekend: 27-28 August


Edinburgh Art Festival

It's the last weekend of the festival month so make sure to make the most of it! We plan to visit some Art Festival venues which are not normally open to the public, for example the Burns Monument, the Old Royal High School or the Trinity Apse. Another cool outdoor project we checked out during last Thursday's Art Late event is called the Rust Garden - it's located at Castle Mill Works in Fountainbridge and it's going to be the home of Edinburgh Printmakers from 2019.

Richard III

Last weekend we went to see Shakespeare's Measure for Measure in Russian. Now Richard III is on at the Lyceum so I can practice my German (or rather practice reading the supertitles). The production by Berlin's Schaubuhne Theatre has pretty good reviews and you might still get lucky to get the odd ticket to one of the weekend shows.


Walk in Dean Village

Last weekend we had a lovely architectural walking tour by Olga of Cobble Tales in Dean Village. The weather was not perfect but the rain did not scare us away. After nearly 5 years of living in the 'burgh she still managed to show us hidden spots we did not know about! The walk is part of this year's Festival of Architecture events and the last festival tour will run this Saturday from 11am. If you can't make tomorrow's walk you can always book a private tour by contacting directly Olga.


Blondilox & Lululemon

Celebrate the launch of the Blondilox online store this Sunday from 10.30am at Lululemon's George Street store. Never heard of Blondilox? Better check her out if you're into porridge. Read Laura Kate's story and sign up for the Facebook event here

Have a nice weekend!
