Big day out
Celebrate the official opening of the 5th session of the Scottish Parliament with the Big Day Out at Holyrood.
Saturday 2 July 2016
From midday watch the colourful ‘Riding’ procession down Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and wave to all the local heroes – nominated by MSPs to recognise the work they do to help others or their community.
In the afternoon the gardens and doors of the Scottish Parliament will be open to everyone to explore, with a host of events and activities for all the family from 2-6pm.
The Big Day Out is FREE – come along for the afternoon to enjoy and celebrate.
Supporting our local heroes
ScotRail is delighted to be supporting the opening of the 5th session of the Scottish Parliament by giving free travel to 400 of our local heroes. We believe we're much more than a railway operator, and are committed to playing a more significant part in supporting our communities and contributing to wider economic growth.
