More than 700 performers from the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will be looked after during the month of August by the accommodation specialists, who manage a portfolio of distinctive venues, catering and event services at the University of Edinburgh.
For the third year running, Pollock Halls will be full in the month of August and Edinburgh First will offer full-board accommodation for the visitors who provide entertainment at one of the world’s spectacular and iconic shows.
Chris Barnes of Edinburgh First, said: “The Military Tattoo is truly one of the highlights of Edinburgh’s calendar and we need to ensure all involved are taken care of to the highest level.
“It is a great privilege to host so many of the cast, who come from all corners of the world, and we want to make everyone feel at home, which is why we organise a huge welcome BBQ and support a range of other activities and social events for them. After each performance, there is an after-show bar for the cast to relax and for younger members there is a film and games room.
“We are more than happy to get involved as the show is not just important to Edinburgh, but to the whole of Scotland. It is great for the University to be able to demonstrate its support for the City and its major world-famous events.”
Edinburgh First offers event delivery, catering and accommodation at the University of Edinburgh and re-invests all its profits to support future generations of students. Not only does Edinburgh First provide year-round accommodation but it can also plan all the essentials of your event.
