Have your say

You’ve heard of a flash mob – now welcome the tache mob.

About 40 people gathered in Parliament Square yesterday, resplendent in (mostly) fake moustaches and reading from their favourite Robert Louis Stevenson book.

The event was part of Edinburgh’s first official Robert Louis Stevenson Day, celebrating the Edinburgh-born author on what would have been his 162nd birthday.

Professor Linda Dryden, co-founder of RLS Day, said: “It was fantastic fun.”
