History

The Second World War had taken its toll on the cultural and creative life of the UK. The founder of the Festival, Rudolf Bing had the intention to “provide a platform for the flowering of the human spirit”, and performers from all over the world were invited. He chose Edinburgh as the host city, as it offered ample venues and a picturesque location.

 

A festival for everyone

One of the central purposes of the International Festival was to bring cultural and social benefits to the whole of Scotland – not just those who were able to attend the events. The organisers also actively encouraged people to put on their own performances during the festival period, a practice which eventually grew into the Fringe Festival.

With Unbeatable Hire - our Motorhome packages can be tailroed for everyone! With includive bed sheets, cutlery and everything you need our range of sizes can suit any family, small or large!

 

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo


This event has always been an integral part of the Edinburgh International Festival. When the festival began, the British Army wanted to showcase their cultural talents – and the Tattoo was born.

 

The Modern Festival

The Festival today aims to bring the highest quality of performing arts to the widest possible audience. It also showcases Scottish culture and brings a rich mix of international culture to the UK.

 

2014

Many well-known names attended the 2014 Festival, including the Kronos Quartet, the Czech Philharmonic, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and the National Theatres of England and Scotland.

The festival examined the topic of war – with moving performances from 43 nations. There were many unique performances on the subject, including a hand puppet representation of the South Africa Truth and Reconciliation Commission. There was a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, which had been written for the re-opening of the war-ravaged Coventry Cathedral in the 60’s.

 

2015

The Festival City; with world premieres, classics, foreign language theatre and amazing local talent, there is certainly something for everyone at the Festival. Juliette Binoche stars in Antigone, The Scottish Chamber Orchestra are set to delight plus too many more acts to mention! Check the latest and plan your diary by following the link.

Small Motorhomes

Our compact Small Motorhomes are the Flash 02/04s. Ideal for a couple, there is a double bed, and a single bed that can be used for a baby or small child as well. This model is perfect for weekends away – full size height inside but small enough to park in an average car park when you need to pick up some supplies.

Call now on 0800 612 5654 during office ours or book online!


Medium Motorhomes

The Medium motorhomes we have to hire are the Flash 03s. These vehicles are ideal for a small family – two adults and two children would fit perfectly. There are two bunk beds and a fantastic kingsize double bed which sits over the cabin. Two couples could also share the Flash 03, as the bunks are large enough to accommodate an adult – you’d have to toss a coin for who gets the kingsize bed though! If you have overnight guests the dinette table can be folded down to create a smaller double bed too.

Call now on 0800 612 5654 during office ours or book online!


Large Motorhomes

Our flagship Large motorhomes, the Flash 25s are a great choice for a family or those wishing to stretch out into a luxuriously spacious vehicle. Up to six people can travel in the Flash 25 and when you’re settled for the night, there’s even room for one more guest!
