It's February! As usual, Edinburgh has plenty of entertainment to offer and things to do. You can enjoy the fascinating Chinese New Year experience in Edinburgh, from the Giant Lanterns at the Edinburgh Zoo, to a Chinese New Year music concert in Usher Hall. If you love rugby, then this is your month. From the exciting Rugby 6 Nations to the Scottish Fan Fest, a great event to watch rugby while enjoying traditional Scottish food and drinks. If you want to experience something breath-taking then go to the Cirque Bersek or the light installation, Lumen.

So many things to do in the shortest month of the year! Have a fantastic February in Edinburgh.
