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: 25-26 February


250 years of New Town

Celebrate the 250th birthday of Edinburgh's New Town with the lumiere experience of Georgian Shadows - a signature event of Scotland's Year of History, Heritage and Archeology in 2017. Six well-known Georgian buildings will have special light projection from Dundas House to Bute House. The event will run between 5.30pm and 8.30pm, from 23rd February until 26th March.


Wine Station at Century General Store

Century General Store is lettig you swap your coffee for wine, with some help with the guys at Wine Tubemap. The pop-up will run this Saturday between 7pm and 11pm and you can also pre-order some food to go with your glass (bottle) of wine.


Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 2

When did you last visit a classical music event? Whenever I turn up at such event in Edinburgh I have the feeling that the average age is at least 65 and young Scots are a rare sight. Classical music is much more popular among young people in the country where I come from - so come and listen to Rachmaninov at the Usher Hall and help me reduce the average age.

Have a nice weekend!
