We are also looking for 20 peopleto stay on after the main rehearsal to try out the new and improved prototype light suits on the hill, so if you are interested in this too, please let us know. This will take place from 6pm -8pm.

Please don't bring any bags, extra clothes, etc. that you will need to leave behind when on the hill as we don't have the capacity to look after these for you. There are facilities nearby to lock upbikes, but please be aware that you will be leaving your bike at your own risk.

We will be meeting on the parade ground on Queen's Drive at the baseof Arthur's' Seat (map below).
