From 4pm each day, Glasgow-based rockabilly band, The Shiverin’ Sheiks, will be performing their hits to get visitors dancing.
On Saturday, visitors can admire Edinburgh’s most colourful hot rods and vintage cars and on Sunday classic bike dealers will be showcasing their vintage bikes and offering information and advice on classic bike culture.
From 12pm – 5pm both days, visitors can pick up vintage clothing and classic bric-a-brac treasures from the Vintage Market. Throughout the weekend there will also be an array of performers taking to the streets to keep children entertained.
