La Clique Noel
Venue: Festival Square Spielgeltent
La Clique Noel returns home to Edinburgh for Christmas with a new seasonal spectacular, La Clique Noel - Part Deux. Along with its dysfunctional collection of extraordinary new artists and firm favourites, the show will feature a scintillating live band and the best of the best in adult, genre-bending, new variety, in a night you won't forget. This theatrical phenomenon contains artists from around the world, a Christmas stocking of seasonal treats - from the subterranean world of circus, comedy, cabaret, variety, magic, burlesque and subversive performance clubs - threaded together by a fabulous live band.
Edinburgh's Christmas Markets
For the past 20 years in the heart of Edinburgh, the popular Christmas Market has been held in its picturesque setting below the Mound. The Christmas Market will, for a second year this year, stretch from the Mound, along East Princes Street Gardens Terrace and around the Scott Monument.
Fair rides include The Edinburgh Wheel, The Snow Globe and The Flying Carousel.
At nearly 60 metres high, the Star Flyer is truly awesome. Take your seat and view Edinburgh like you've never seen it before. With 360 views over the rooftops!
Edinburgh Ice Rink
St Andrew Square Ice Rink
Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to Santa.
After a good break the man himself is back to welcome you to his new look grotto. Children will enjoy a bespoke Christmas Story in this 'audience with' style grotto, and each child will also have the opportunity to meet the man himself and receive a wee gift!
