Summerhall and Nothing Ever Happens Here are proud to be collaborating for the first time with the Edinburgh International Film Festival to present ‘Sound & Vision,’ the inaugural two day al fresco live music and film screening events – all in the magical courtyard at Summerhall in the heart of the city.

As part of the Films In The City programme we are proud and excited to be presenting two very different, but very special nights.

NEHH, Summerhall and EIFF over the moon to welcome Badly Drawn Boy to the venue, to perform live the soundtrack to the film About a Boy. Support comes from Admiral Fallow, Randolph’s Leap and Teen Canteen The music will be followed by an outdoor screening of the Oscar nominated blockbuster.

They say everyman is an an Island…’ well ours is the courtyard and its the middle of our wonderful site. Bring a blanket, see Badly Drawn Boy LIVE then watch a classic British film!

This is a unique night to be part of three amazing Edinburgh institutions – and we expect tickets to fly so get in quick.

Do bear in mind that it is an outdoor event, it is Edinburgh – in June – be prepared, bring a mac!

There are limited, VIP picnic bench tickets for sale where up to 6 of you have your very own seats, blankets, popcorn, table service and a great view.

There will be bars food stalls, popcorn, ice cream and the odd rendition of Killing Me softly…

You can only book VIP benches through the Summerhall box office – ALL courtyard tickets will be sold through both Summerhall and EIFF websites.

Adapted from the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby, in which a cynical, immature man is taught how to act like a grown-up by a little boy.

Bars and concessions available on-site.

Timings TBC, line-up subject to change.
