Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018
Reading the Streets: An Old Town Poetry Tour 
August 4-8, 11-15, 18-22, 25-27 (11.00–12.30)
Scottish Poetry Library (Venue 203)

“An excellent tour for both the historian and the poetry lover: Ken is a brilliant guide and his love for the poems shines out and illuminates them for us.”
Mary Woodward, Scotsgay, on Come Down the Mile, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2016

I run tours open to the public for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Tradfest and on other occasions. You can also book private tours. Each tour weaves in and out of the Old Town’s closes, gardens and graveyards, and includes a range of poems and prose by authors including Robert Burns, Dorothy Wordsworth, Victor Hugo, Robert Louis Stevenson and the great Anon, as well as background about where we stop and what we see.

Tours include:

  • ‘Ye Jacobites by Name’
  • Edinburgh: the last 500 years
  • Palace, Park and Parliament
  • Kirks and Kirkyards
