Around sundown on 30th April 2017, The Beltane Fire Festival will take place on Calton Hill in Edinburgh.   A procession from the National Monument (the Acropolis) is driven by the beat of drums, at the procession head is the May Queen and the Green Man.  There is a performance and the birth of summer is signified by lighting a huge bonfire. Red and white dancers dance then mix with the audience as everyone drifts off into the night, some as late at 1.30am.  Experience this unique event and book yourself a comfy bed to return to at High Street Hostel.  High Street hostel is in a small street just off The Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.
