A showcase for world-class Iranian culture!         

The Edinburgh Iranian Festival is a non-political showcase for world-class Iranian culture, as well as for bands and artists working both in and outside Iran. We aim to introduce the tremendous breadth of Iranian history and culture to adults and children in Scotland, and to integrate the two communities through a broad range of interactive events spanning numerous art-forms. 

The festival is being organised by a dedicated team of volunteers. If you would like to offer your time and/or advice with organising events or at events themselves, please e-mail  i
