Event description

Description

Come with us to visit one of the most important historic musical instrument collections anywhere in the world. This trip is open to Dads and kids aged 0-5 yrs.

St Cecilia's Hall is Scotland's oldest purpose-built concert hall. Built in 1762, the Georgian venue is a real hidden gem, tucked away in the heart of Edinburgh's Cowgate.

We will take part in a private Museum trail to discover instruments from across the world, and from the the 18th century!

**Priority booking for Dads Rock members and regular playgroup attendees**

More information about St Cecilia's:

The Music Museum displays the University's unparalleled collection of musical instruments from across the globe, including its world-famous harpsichords, some of which are playable. Making this the only place in the world, it is claimed, that you can hear 18th-century music being played on 18th-century instruments in an 18th- century setting.

More than 400 instruments have been conserved as part of the redevelopment project by a dedicated conservation officer. This work continues, as the building features a dedicated space for treating instruments, which is visible for those visiting to see.
