Festival Fun Times!

August is Edinburgh Festival time at Hannah Zakari!

We’re lucky all year round to live in Edinburgh, but in August it’s a whole other level! The city is totally transformed by street performers, pop up venues, weird and wonderful sights, and lots and lots of visitors. It’s a wild time to call this city home!

The Edinburgh Festival is nearly over now, so it feels like a good moment to step back and think about all the things that make this time of year unique.

The Fun

The Edinburgh Festival brings a whole new energy to the city! The party atmosphere spills out onto the streets and makes the whole area feel alive. Here are a few party favourites from Hannah Zakari to add some quirky glitz to your night out:

The People

The best thing about this time of year is the amazing, creative people the festival brings with it! So many of our customers are artists and performers, and it’s so lovely to hear all about their shows and their recommendations when they come in to the shop. HZ is all about that creativity:
