An international affair
Social media giveaway enables alumni to enjoy the Edinburgh International Festival for free.
The beginning of August saw a frenzy of activity on our Facebook and Twitter accounts as Edinburgh International Festival tickets were given away to eagle-eyed alumni with a good command of university general knowledge.
Brain teasing questions covered upcoming events, including next year’s alumni weekend and Teviot Row House’s 125 year anniversary, to detailed biographical information regarding our most famous graduates.
We gave away tickets to some of the most sought after productions at the Festival including the world premiere of the James plays by Rona Munro and Inala, a musical collaboration featuring current and former dancers from Rambert and the Royal Ballet, and the music of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
