Samhuinn Fire Festival 2019

Edinburgh's spectacular Winter festival returns once more to Calton Hill this October with a fiery twist on Halloween night.

SAMHUINN FIRE FESTIVAL brings the Celtic New Year to a modern audience with a dazzling mix of fire, drumming, acrobatics, and immersive theatre.

The nights are getting longer and the veil draws thin between our world and the next. As we turn to face the dark wintry months together, hundreds of otherworldly creatures will awaken all over Calton Hill and gather for an epic struggle between Winter and Summer.

Witness the dramatic battle between the Winter King and the Summer King up close, before the mysterious Cailleach emerges to decide each of their fates.

Adult tickets are £8 + booking fee in advance and £10 on the day. Child tickets are £4 + booking fee in advance and £5 on the day. There are a limited amount of low income tickets available for £3 + booking fee.
