EIF 2017 Opening Night

Aug 05, 2017, 09:30 AM

The Edinburgh International Festivals opening nights have been getting bigger year by year, they’ve projected onto The Usher Hall, Edinburgh Castle and this year they have taken over St Andrews Square for two nights of large-scale projection, light, sound and music.

‘Bloom’ celebrates the origins of the International Festival but also pays tribute to the Jazz & Science Festivals and the famous Tattoo.

I had the opportunity to chat with the festival's Managing Director Joanna Baker about their special 70th programme.

EIF runs until the 28th of August for more information visit eif.co.uk
