The organisers have been trying hard to find a way to bring the Torchlight Procession into Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations this year, however they are very disappointed to confirm that due to the current economic climate , and the driop in available funing, they are unable to go ahead with this event in 2022. They very much hope to bring back the Torchlight Procession to the Edinburgh Hogmanay programme in 2023.
