TED Tour

Our first tour of Edinburgh as a large ensemble since 2019 is supported by the TED Countdown Summit, part of the lead up to COP26, being held in Glasgow in November 2021.

The summit’s speakers include UN Deputy Secretary-General, Amina J. Mohammed and Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, and former US Vice-President, Al Gore, and Nevis will be performing at the opening session on Tuesday 12 October 2021.

During the day, we will visit a number of community venues and public spaces around Edinburgh, and we can’t wait to be back performing!
