Art For Lunch – Free Concerts At St Giles (Various Artists)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Escape the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile and make your way to the serene surroundings of St Giles Cathedral for an afternoon of calming music. Throughout the entire festival you can relax in the early afternoon with this free series of musical performances set in this magnificent, historic building. On my visit, I was treated to a youth performance by the South West Camerata joined by the North Ayrshire Music Service. The programme consisted of Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’ with verse in multiple languages. The various performers change every day so you can come to this event as often as you like for a new experience each time. It’s a lovely way to recharge yourself during the festival.

St Giles Cathedral, until 29 Aug, 12.15pm.
