Come and meet the men of the Edinburgh LDV (early Home Guard) as they would have looked at the outbreak of the Second World War. The men and ladies of the local LDV will be stationed at the Museum of Edinburgh throughout the day, showing the various improvised weapons and tactics used in preparation the German invasion! Drill and Weapon demonstrations: 12pm and 2pm

Open Streets in Edinburgh temporarily open streets to people by closing them to cars. Open Streets seeks to help to increase public exploration, use and awareness of the connected areas in the old town. We are delighted that our four Royal Mile venues are participating with a series of free lively events.

Don’t Panic! The Edinburgh LDV are on patrol!
