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: 24-25 June


Edinburgh International Film Festival

One of our favourite festivals, the Edinburgh International Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday and it's on until 2 July. There are plenty of great films to choose from and we love that this year's focus is on Poland. Our top Polish movie pick is Afterimage (Powidoki), Andrzej Wajda's very last work.


New Moon Festival

New Moon celebrations start at the Secret Herb Garden from 10am. Food vendors include The Pantry, Brochan for porridge lovers and Pizza Geeks. You can also shop local brands featuring Century General Store amongst others.

Midsummer on Broughton Street

The indie retailers of Broughton Street have teamed up for a street wide shopping event. Support local shops and shop independent - participating retailers include Narcissus Flowers, Life Sory, Curioser and Curioser, Concrete Wardrobe and others. There will be live music, summery drinks and discounts.


Southside Summer BBQ at Earthy

Another great event celebrating midsummer and local produce from the Southside Food Assembly. Drinks are supplied by Mr Enthusiast's favourite Barney Beer. Buy your tickets here.

Have a nice weekend!
