We are very sorry to confirm that the forthcoming Festival Soundings of Edinburgh event that was scheduled to take place on Saturday 18th September from 11:30 until 13:00 (BST) has been cancelled.

The Festival Soundings of Edinburgh event will be taking place, however, as scheduled, on Tuesday 21st September, between 18:00 and 19:30 (BST).
We apologise for any inconvenience, and would be very pleased if you could join us for the event on the 21st.

Festival Soundings of Edinburgh is a FREE online group walk to explore the venues, places and spaces of past Edinburgh festivals revealed through audio recordings of the memories of city residents and visitors.

We invite you to join us and share your own Edinburgh festival memories and especially of which places and spaces added to or detracted from your enjoyment of the city.

Led by Dr Louise Todd of Edinburgh Napier University and Andrew Stuck at the Museum of walking this online event will take approximately 90 minutes and visit several festival venues.

If you are unable to attend either of these group sessions, you can download an abridged geolocated sound walk to follow a suggested walk through the city. Go to Sonic Maps https://sonicmaps.xyz and search for Festival Soundings

Special thanks to Jack Pedersen and Benedetta Piccio for their contributions, research, audio interviews and sound walk production.
