This new lifestyle and fashion event, organised by Essential Edinburgh, takes place across the three floors of George Street's Royal Society building.

Different themed rooms will feature gadgets, fashion, food & drink, travel, fitness, beauty and interior design. Workshops, talks and pop-up shops will be organised with over 40 businesses participating, among them Harvey Nichols, Jessops, BoConcept, John Lewis, and Waterstones.

"The event is designed as an experience for visitors of different interests, so if you’re more interested in sport than shopping, there are areas and workshops designed just for you. Or if you want to learn how to transform your bedroom into that dream space you’ve seen on Instagram, we have people there to show you how," says Event Organiser Amy Mancini.

Ticketholders can enjoy complimentary beauty treatments from the likes of Lush, Bobbi Brown and Neal’s Yard Remedies.

Reserved seating at fashion shows featuring Anthropologie, Oliver Bonas, Marks & Spencer, Covet, Gap and other brands.

There's also cocktail-making masterclasses with Badger & Co and tea tasting with The East India Company; styling sessions with Jenners; and a seat at the ‘Lifestyle Stage’, where celebrity and local speakers will share their inspirational stories, top tips and answer questions from the audience.

The event extends outdoors to St Andrew Square Garden, where fitness-clothing brand lululemon will host free-to-attend Yoga Sessions and Tesla will have their latest luxury battery powered cars on display and offer bookings for free test drives.
