Video - Ed Bartlam of Edinburgh's Hogmanay

Hogmanay Ed 975x400

As Edinburgh's Festivals celebrate the 70th anniversary of the festival city, we thought it would be great to hear from the people who put these incredible events together - the festival directors and producers. 

In our latest video, here's Ed Bartlam from Edinburgh's Hogmanay (30 December 2017 - 1 January 2018) telling us all about Hogmanay, working with Edinburgh's other festivals and what drink he thinks his festival would be.

...what festivals do is they bring people together, they really take that sense of community and pull it further and further, so that you're seeing stuff in amongst people who you may have met for the first time, seeing shows that you've never seen before - and that's a really good thing...

In early 2017 we launched a range of videos featuring the directors and producers of Edinburgh's major festivals. These include:

Science Festival | Military Tattoo | Jazz & Blues Festival | Art Festival | Storytelling Festival | International Festival | Fringe | Children's Festival | Book Festival | Film Festival | Edinburgh's Hogmanay

Edinburgh's Hogmanay runs from 30 December 2017 - 1 January 2018. More information about the Festival: Headliner | Lineup Competition General info

Throughout 2017, we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of Edinburgh's Festivals. Find out more about the 70th anniversary
