Sunday 5 July, 2pm - 3pm

Join our costumed performers Edinburgh Living History for a trip back to the 18th century. Hear about life on the streets of Edinburgh. James Craig talks about the plans for the new town which will enable the rich to escape from the disease and poverty of the old one. Watch the history of the Old Town unfold in front of your eyes.

Free and drop-in, no need to book.

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.
