 We would like to invite you to join us and attend this spectacular free outdoor event on Friday 3rd August which marks the opening of the 2018 International Festival.

Celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People and reflecting on the centenary of the end of the Great War, this very special event features brand new music from Scottish composer Anna Meredith, projected digital artwork designed by 59 Productions and live performers.

Taking inspiration from telegrams sent by young soldiers in 1918, Five Telegrams presents themes including machines, codes and propaganda.

As a signature Year of Young People event, Edinburgh International Festival invites young people and their families from North Edinburgh to attend this spectacular performance.
