Event Details

During what would have been the first week of the 2020 Edinburgh International Festival, we take you on a quick tour through Edinburgh Festivals of the past from the collections of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive. Look out for glimpses of Fonteyn, Menuhin, Dietrich, Burton and Bloom – there’s opera, theatre, art and classical music – mid-century graphics, Mounties, the Military Tattoo and hippies dancing in the street – a selection of clips that capture both the mayhem and tranquillity of this great showcase for the arts.

The link to join the online session can be found at the bottom of your Eventbrite order confirmation email. You will also be sent a reminder of this 48 hours before the live event begins. This event will be hosted via Zoom.
