Over at YO! on Princes Street, they're holding exciting Japanese cooking classes. What to expect? A fun, interactive experience where you'll get to make four delicious types of sushi, from sashimi and nigiri to maki and hand rolls. Plus, you'll enjoy drinks and nibbles while you do so.

Serene Woodland Escapes

Connect with nature and yourself as you embark on one of Serene Woodland Escape's many unique trials, led by experienced instructors. Partake in group walks with yoga from £119 per person, which includes lunch and requires you to bring a mat, cup and spoon. Some trips involve exclusively foraging for beginners which start at £60 each, so whatever your level of experience, there's something for everyone.

The Three Sisters

One of the capital's favourite pubs, The Three Sisters, is holding all kinds of brilliant Edinburgh events this weekend. Head on over for cabaret-style performances of songs from iconic musicals, as well stand-up shows by some absolutey hilarious comedians.

With authentic interiors that date back to 1905, Scotsman Hotel & Grand Cafe is an opulent haven for relaxed drinking and dining. Even better, it's a hubbub of fantastic entertainment, including live music and cinema screenings, not to mention fun afternoon teas.


Want to relive your clubbing days, but without the 3am finishes? That's where Studio38.Club comes in. Their daytime discos for over 30s are popping up across the city, bringing you 80s and 90s anthems and forgotten favourites to dance to from 3 'til 8pm - all for just £12 per person.
