As you may know, Edinburgh is the City of Festivals. The calendar is literally bulging with various events most weekends during the year. There’s a slight lull in the late winter months, but as spring arrives (as it has here in Scotland), the festival calendar has sprang from the frozen ground and is getting its groove on. Here are a couple of events to make sure to check out next time you’re in Edinburgh.

- Edinburgh International Science Festival. The Edinburgh International Science Festival is hosted in several venues across the city, including such great sites like the City Art Centre. While it’s a great treat for children who get to experience loads of interactive exhibits and just really fun, cool stuff, adults will enjoy the learning environment too. This year you can get up close and personal with a robot – his name is ASIMO – and learn about the history of ghosts. (There are ghosts everyone in Scotland, from Edinburgh to Dundee.). To learn more, visit the website and check out the events list – prices are listed where applicable.
- Made in Edinburgh. The Filmhouse Cinema is hosting a great session right now about Films Made in Edinburgh. Most folk are familiar with classics like Festival or Trainspotting but there are actually several movies set here in the city. For more information you can also visit the Inspiring Capital website.
