Edinburgh Wellbeing Festival

Edinburgh's only fest dedicated to health, fitness and wellbeing comes to the Assembly Rooms this weekend. Speakers include Tom Kerridge, Finlay Wilson (or should I rather say: the Kilted Yogi), Jasmine Hemsley and others. There will be also workshops and classes by Dancebase, Lululemon and Nuffield Health. Check out the full programme here.



Visit the Anatomical Museum

The Anatomical Museum is only open to the public a couple of times in a year - this Saturday will be their very first open day in 2018. Wondering what to expect? The collection consists of approximately 12,000 objects, including skeletons of some famous and infamous people, like the serial killers Burke and Hare. The museum is part of the Medical School of the University of Edinburgh and you can enter at Doorway 3, Teviot Place. Can't make it? Download the museum app and take a virtual tour.

Red, Red Rose Street

Happy Burns Night! The festival celebrating the work of Rabbie Burns returns with a three day long celebration. This Saturday is the closing day of the fest, with a great range of free workshops, live entertainment on Rose Street and a Bairns Trail for children.



Burns Supper at Cafe St Honore

Cafe St Honore is one of our favourite Edinburgh restaurants - if you are after a delicious Burns Supper, this is the place to go. The menu is packed with local Scottish ingredients from Belhaven salmon to venison with haggis. Booking is essential, make your reservation for Sunday night here.


Have a nice weekend!
