What’s On: April/May

Be sure to take a well deserved break from your studies this month as Edinburgh has plenty on offer to help your relax or even run off the stress that comes with the upcoming exam season.

Paws Against Stress

It has been scientifically proven that spending some downtime with a furry friend can reduce stress levels so, if you are a dog lover, this one's for you. On both 30th April and 8th May, Paws Against Stress will be returning to Teviot Row House during which time you can cuddle up to the specially approved therapy dogs affectionately nicknamed the “Therapets”. Tickets are limited however so we suggest booking ASAP after the tickets have been released, which is the Friday before the respective dates, to avoid disappointment.

Coming to The Meadows in Edinburgh on May 11th, Gung Ho! is an inflatable 5K obstacle course reminiscent of classic TV game shows, Total Wipeout and Takeshi’s Castle. Designed to be an inclusive, fun course, this is a great way to raise money for charity without the months of training and hard work!
