On Canongate: The Glorious Half Mile to Holyrood Palace

Sunday 2 November, 1.00pm – 4.00pm
Once Upon a Place: Scottish Storytelling Festival 2014

Look again at Edinburgh’s glorious Canongate. Sir Walter Scott was inspired to pen his Chronicles of the Canongate, and Edinburgh’s beloved makar Robert Fergusson found his last resting place at the Kirk. All the pageant of life has gone up and down this street from Queens to rebels, courtiers to beggars, and indigent debtors to the wealthiest in the land. In former times churches, palaces, and taverns jostled for space. Enjoy free events at The Museum of Edinburgh, Canongate Kirk, the People’s Story Museum, Acheson House, and the Scottish Parliament. A glorious afternoon of Once Upon the Canongate brings Edinburgh – City of Story – to life. With the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union and in association with Edinburgh Museums and Galleries, Edinburgh World Heritage and Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature.
