Edinburgh International Festival Opening Ceremony
The LA Phil brings a uniquely authentic gleam and glamour to the grandeur of Hollywood film scores in this year’s Opening Event, featuring classic movie music from the Golden Age of Hollywood by Korngold, Herrmann, Waxman and a selection from the best-loved film composer on the planet: John Williams. In this epic family friendly concert, Gustavo Dudamel and his orchestra take over Tynecastle Park stadium for music from Star Wars, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, E.T. and many more.

Arrivals from 7pm... Event starts 7.30pm. As we are on the pitch, we can enter via any entrance.
Ticket checks will take place at the turnstiles for each entrance. Find out more about getting to the venue and access information here.
If coming by bus: Bus stop (Tynecastle): 1, 2, 3, 25, 27, 33, N25. (Lothian) - subject to them not being on strike!!!
I therefore suggest we meet at the pub outside on the corner (Tynecastle Arms pub) on the Gorgie Road at 6.45pm and then walk to the main entrance on MacLeod Street.
If Sandra, Aileen and Alicia could provide their email address, I can try and send a copy of the ticket to them just in case we have issues meeting up.
