The Night Afore International event has been introduced several years ago in Edinburgh's Hogmanay programme building on the resounding success of the New Year Street Party.

Over the last two years, the Night Afore Fiesta has brought a mix of Scottish tradition with International entertainment, film and food from India, France and Catalonia.

In 2009, the Night Afore sees the biggest catalonian carnival on British soil. Highlights include Catalan dancers, musicians, performers led by the Scottish Pipe Bands Overture, a human tower of more than 150 people rising from the crowd, street theatre, pyrotechnics as well as Spanish food and drink to be sampled in the stylish bars of George Street.

Details on the Night Afore festivities

The three-hour long Fiesta takes place in George Street, adding modern and colourful performances to the classical surroundings of the New Town. George Street is beautifully decorated with Christmas lights, becoming an ideal venue for this free family event.
