A spectacular afternoon of inspiring classical music is set to close one of the world’s largest arts festivals, and Edinburgh’s award-winning tram network offers a convenient way to travel to and from the venues.

Beethoven’s Seven Symphony and Carlos Simon’s ‘Fate Now Conquers’ will be among the highlights at the Edinburgh Playhouse which is just a short walk from St Andrew Square tram stop.

What’s more, music lovers can also watch and listen to this family-friendly programme live from Princes Street Gardens on a big screen, and with trams from every seven minutes throughout the day, getting to the concert couldn’t be easier.

Edinburgh Trams’ Managing Director Lea Harrison said:

This year’s festival season has been a huge success all round, and we’re delighted to have played an integral part in delivering a premium service that helped people make the most of it.

To avoid the hassle of finding a parking spot in the city centre, those travelling from outside Edinburgh can park their cars at Ingliston Park & Ride, which has more than a thousand free spaces available, before completing their journey into the concert by tram.

Customers can take advantage of a wide range of online ticket deals, including the tram operator’s value-for-money ‘Family Day Tripper’, and further details can be found here.

The Philadelphia Orchestra will take to the stage on Saturday, August 27, with music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin as conductor. Visit the Festival’s website to find out more about the ‘Thank You, Edinburgh’ special concert.
