What's on around Edinburgh in June?

Visit Edinburgh this month for Art festivals, 'Sunshine on Leith' and the Royal Highland Show.

Highland Show Edinburgh, children, cow, showing

The Royal Highland Show | A great fun day out for all the family



The Royal Highland Show is a real highlight this month. We love visiting the shows huge cattle shed to meet the best of all breeds as well as the fluffy Highland favourites. Next door you can watch the Scottish clydesdale horses, such gentle giants, being prepared for the ring and pulling their brewers dray in teams of six.

Children will love the Shetland ponies and the cheeky goats who thrive on the attention and the odd nibble of clothing.

Royal Highland Show | 23rd - 26th June 2022 *all tickets must be bought online this year.

Hidden Door Festival | 9th -18th June 2022

The Hidden Door Arts Festival transforms its next derelict city space into a bustling arts venue. Hidden Door is a happy blend of grassroots artists and headline acts, in the words of Barry Gordon “Hidden Door have quietly resuscitated what surely is – even in its current rough ‘n’ ready state – the best live music venue in the country.”

Edinburgh Whisky Festival | 19th June 2022

Edinburgh International Film Festival | TBC



Fathers Day | 21st June 2020

How about booking yourselves in to Craft Beer Kitchen. Stewarts Brewing has long invited the public in to try their hand at crafting the perfect pint. With expert guidance you can spend the day brewing your very own bespoke beer. If staying at Eastside the brewery are more than happy to send the beer on (within the UK) when it's ready. Not a bad holiday souvenir!
