  • The Old Town, The Mound and Princes Street will be very busy on 30 December if you’re going to the Night Afore Concert please make your way to West Princes Street Gardens early and enter from the West End of Princes Street for all entrance gates to avoid the Torchlight Procession – Concert gates open at 6.00pm and the gate you should use is specified on your ticket
  • Those travelling to the Night Afore Concert on the 30 December by train should alight at Haymarket Station and walk to entrance gates for West Princes Street Gardens along Shandwick Place (approx. 10min walk)
  • If you have tickets to both on 30 December you can enjoy the Torchlight Procession and Night Afore Concert but we recommend you do not go up Calton Hill to view the finale, as dispersal off the Hill at the end of the event takes time and you may miss the concert.
