Edinburgh’s St Andrew Square has poster displays of the City’s forthcoming Science Festival. I’m sure the Festival is getting bigger and better every year, though I have to admit that for the last three or so years I have only attended the children’s events held at the Arts Centre (where kids do loads of interesting things with electronics, robots, botanists and medics, while their parents hang around in corridors and look at their watches). If you don’t have children then why not borrow some* and take them along between April 9th and 22nd. Grown-up stuff too, I see from the programme. Maybe I will treat myself.
Edinburgh is quite a city, it does these things so well. Except trams… don’t mention the trams.
