EDINBURGH'S CHRISTMAS CANCELLED
Live events involving mass gatherings at Edinburgh’s Christmas 2020 have been cancelled due to ‘uncertainty’ surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.
At last week’s meeting of the Policy & Sustainability Committee, councillors unanimously agreed to appoint a ‘service provider’ to deliver a consultation on the future, from 2022 onwards, of Edinburgh’s Winter Festivals (Edinburgh’s Christmas and Edinburgh’s Hogmanay).
This decision followed earlier consultation with the All Party Oversight Group, which will continue to oversee the appointment and consultation processes.
