The second allocation of tickets for the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert will be released on 18th July at 10am, online, over the phone and in person at The Hub.
Tickets go on sale this morning (Saturday 2nd April) for the Edinburgh International Festival. EIF director Jonathan Mills has waxed that this year's Far Eastern themed (or "Far Western" as Mills has suggested) festival will be "highly embroidered, exquisite, gorgeous".
"It will intoxicate people with its ravishing beauty," says Mills.
With that in mind, we're asking what are the "must see" shows at this year's festival?
Public sales of Edinburgh International Festival tickets start from 10am this Saturday 2 April. Ticket prices start at just £10. Students and under-18s can claim 50 per cent off.

As a lifelong Edinburgh resident, I have experienced the Capital’s Christmas and New Year Festival celebrations over many years, (dating back to the days when over 300,000 unticketed spectators crammed onto Princes Street on 31 December). I often think I should become jaded by the annual display of sparkling trees, ice rink, music, song and dance, with fireworks at midnight.
