The Virgin Money Fireworks Concert is the spectacular finale of the Edinburgh International Festival, bringing together unforgettable classics performed live by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and a specially choreographed fireworks display – all set against the magnificent backdrop of Edinburgh’s iconic Castle.
Enjoy a picnic in Princes Street Gardens and get the best views in the city as more than 400,000 fireworks are launched from the Castle, making this one of the biggest fireworks concerts in the world.
The event takes place tonight at 9pm and you could be there! We’ve teamed up with the Edinburgh International Festival to offer readers the chance to win one of 50 pairs of tickets for the Gardens.
Catriona Morison, BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2017, joins the orchestra for a selection from Bizet’s Carmen, before the magic of the second part of the concert comes alive with Glinka’s Ruslan and Ludmila Overture and Dukas’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, made world-famous in Disney’s Fantasia. Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique closes the International Festival with a fiery finale. Find out more at https://www.eif.co.uk/whats-on/2019/virginmoneyfireworks
