Edinburgh Festival Fireworks

Edinburgh Festival Fireworks 2010

This year’s Edinburgh festival, as in previous years goes out with a bang. The fireworks show is a 45-minute spectacular beginning at 9:00pm on Sunday 1ST September. The World famous Scottish Chamber Orchestra will perform live whilst the team from Pyrovision will choreograph the display in conjunction with the music.

The best place to experience the whole of the Virgin Money show will be from the grand grounds of Princes Street Gardens which are situated beneath Edinburgh’s beautiful castle. Everyone should note that the event opens to priority ticket holders from 6:30 but the public entrances will be opened from 7:00pm.

You should note that whilst the organisers will allow you to bring your own picnic along to the event, you must not take any glass bottles or picnic tables as they will affect the viewing pleasure of others and can be hazardous after dark.

This year the ‘theme’ is a little more taxing to tie down. The works of the Russian composer Musorgsky who created the beautiful orchestral piece ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ uses music to depict imagery in all its forms and the huge brass fanfares will add that bit of class to the fireworks.

This spectacular event has been running for a number of years and more than 100,000 fireworks will be used to ensure that this will be a truly wonderful spectacle.

It is certain to be a concert that you will not wish to miss. More details are available here.

The truly awesome Edinburgh Festival Fireworks.

The Virgin Money fireworks bring a close to the Edinburgh Festival with a fantastic firework performance alongside the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s concert, the colour and tie the size of the breaks in the fireworks. We think this is a gorgeous example of what can be achieved with some clever planning.
