Virgin Money Fireworks Concert

Sponsored by Virgin Money

Sunday 31 August
  • Running time: 
    45 minutes approximately

The Virgin Money Fireworks Concert brings Edinburgh's summer festival season to a spectacular conclusion, celebrating courage, heroism and struggles for freedom through stirring, uplifting music
and a breathtaking fireworks display specially choreographed by international fireworks artists Pyrovision.

Alongside the majesty of Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries' from Die Walküre and Debussy's rousing March Écossaise, the concert takes in the stormy passions of Beethoven's Egmont Overture and the memorable 'War March of the Priests' from Mendelssohn's Athalie.

Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, written to celebrate Russia's deliverance from Napoleon's invading armies, brings the evening to an electrifying conclusion, accompanied by a glittering display of pyrotechnics from the Edinburgh Castle ramparts.

You can buy tickets for Priority Entry and standard Princes Street Gardens here. The Ross Theatre is now sold out.
