Co-ordinated by Emma Loane, Sales and Marketing Manager of Malmaison and Anna Christopherson owner of the award-winning Boda Bar Group, Yule Fest Leith is an independent event designed to showcase the very best of Leith’s diverse drinking holes this festive season.

Cosy up with a mulled wine or a warming cocktail for maximum hygge vibes in Edinburgh’s coolest neighbourhood. Running from 5th November to 5th January*, Yule Fest will help you beat the winter blues in EH6.

The partner bars are working collaboratively to create an exciting two-month programme for festival-goers to look forward to this winter, each with their very own unique Leith flavour. From exclusive events and mixology masterclasses to live music, DJs and talks, Yule Fest-goers are set for a neat winter with a twist.

Wristbands (valid for the duration) cost just £5 and on showing it to the bartender you will be entitled to our partner bar’s signature cocktail for just £5.

Proceeds from the wristbands will go to two Leith-based charities, Hidden Door an independent arts festival run entirely by volunteers, and Leithers Don’t Litter who are committed to cleaning up their neighbourhood to make Leith the loveliest part of Edinburgh.

* Please note, wristbands are not valid on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. Please check individual participating bars for festive opening hours.
