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: 1-2 October


Inspiring Impressionism

If you have not yet visited, this weekend is your last chance to see the impressionists at the Scottish National Gallery on the Mound. The exhibition focuses on three key artists: Daubigny, Monet and Van Gogh.


Edinburgh Coffee Festival

After last year's success this Saturday Summerhall hosts Edinburgh's second Coffee Fest. There will be over 30 stalls of roasters and local cafes including Brew Lab, Cairngorm, the lovely Mr Eoin, Pekotea and others. You will also be able to get advice on specialist equipment - perhaps time to get your aeropress or V60 pour-over?

Project Wine

On the other side of the Meadows, Project Coffee will turn into a pop-up wine bar - just for one day. The event is hosted by Winetubemap and you can find the Facebook event here.

Volcano Fun Day

Who does not love our extinct volcano, better known as Arthur's Seat? Historic Scotland will host a Volcano Fun Day with geology walks at 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm, and you will be also able to create your own volcano model. Read more and find the Facebook event here.


Suppliant Women

Watch one of the world's oldest plays by Aeschylus at the Lyceum - you can book your tickets here. As per techniques of the ancient Greek theatre, the title roles are played by recruited and trained Edinburgh citizens.

Have a nice weekend!
