Take an Information Stall at Social in the Gardens 2018!

ESE - Social in the Gardens 2017

The Festival of Social Enterprise – Social in the Gardens 2018

Fri 27 & Sat 28 July |10-8.30pm | Ross Bandstand, Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh

Social in the Gardens captures the magic of some of the most incredible social enterprises in Edinburgh and beyond, bringing them together for 2 special days of music, comedy, dance, food and drink, as well as kids events. In 2017, over 40 enterprises were involved in celebrating and raising awareness about the community and environmental impact of social enterprise.


Benefits of having a stall: Social in the Gardens 2017 was an extremely high profile event, locally and internationally. Over 8000 people attended the event over the 2 days. In 2018 we expect even higher numbers! Having an information stall would increase awareness and is a great opportunity to engage directly with people.
