Magic Festival

Are you ready for some magic? The Edinburgh Magic Festival kicks off this Friday and it's on until 19th May. This year's highlights include the first ever Wizard World Gathering, Magic Fest Gala and the Secret Room at Lauriston Castle or at the Writers' Museum. We got a preview of the fest a couple of weeks ago, check out our Instagram highlights for a sneak peak.

Open Weekend at Port Edgar

The annual Port Edgar open day is back this weekend, offering taster sessions for those interested in watersports. This year they are joined by Rouge Village who will bring the Canteen Street Food Fest to the Marina. Expect rib rides under the three bridges, sailing and various dry land activities.



Detox Health and Beauty Day

Meanwhile in East Lothian the Archerfield Walled Garden is hosting a Detox Health & Beauty Day this Saturday.  Expect talks, fitness classes and craft workshops along with sampling food, drinks and skincare.



Open Day at Tyninghame

It's the first public open day of the year at the stunning Tyninghame Garden and we could not be more excited! I have been wanting to visit the garden since we missed the open day last year - let's just hope Mr Enthusiast agrees to drive me there this Sunday.

Have a nice weekend!
