Come join the bears for their 18th annual gathering in Edinburgh. Kick off with our Early-Bird Welcome Social at The Regent Bar on Thursday evening. Catch up with old friends, and make new ones in this cosy neighbourhood bar. The Welcome Desk opens at CC Blooms on Friday from 1200hrs and here you can collect your registration pack, including your pass to all the weekend’s activities, and pick up all the info you will need for the weekend. You can enjoy a beer or a spot of lunch and also browse around our Bear Market and pick up your pre-ordered event t-shirt. You’ll also have free time to catch up, or to explore the city at your leisure, before our Welcome Party with buffet at CC Blooms from 2000 hrs. Dance the night away in the basement club with our guest DJs including BeefMince's fantastic Cactushead.
Saturday Brunch is served at CC Blooms from 1200 hrs, giving you ample time to pick up those last minute registrations or beary merchandise and then you have a few afternoon optional add-on activites to choose from: Take a splash at Bearscots’ now (in)famous Wet Fur Pool Party in the beautiful Victorian grandeur of Glenogle Baths
For the more genteel and demure amongst us, enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea at Mimi's Bakehouse on Leith's Waterfront.
Journey out to rural East Lothian for a VIP Tour and Whisky Tasting at Glenkinchie Distillery.
(NB Transportation is included to all of our organised Saturday afternoon activities!) Saturday night is the highlight of our weekend as we party in the Caves, deep in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. This stunning atmospheric venue, on several levels each with its own bar space, comes to life to the sounds of our long-standing and beloved BearScots Treasures DJs Corky and Mishka who always seem to know just what gets the dancefloor jumpin! The adjoining Rowantree Bar is a welcome oasis with comfy seats and lounge-style music. As the night comes to a close, "say aye tae a Bearscots pie" as traditional sustenance for your walk home! Sunday brunch at the quirky and friendly Nom de Plume Cafe in the heart of the gay village will revitalises you in time for our lively Sunday afternoon show at The Jam House. Once again, we welcome the glamorous and lovable Bella and the Bear who play host to the afternoon's activities and our special guest is Scotland’s own star of “Live at the Apollo”, Comedy Central UK and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Larry Dean. The afternoon includes group karaoke, and of course our Mr Bearscots competition - not quite Rue Paul's Drag Race though it does get a bit bitchy in the Green Room. Our guest DJ Drew will provide some classic cheezy tunes and of course you can check to see if you've been lucky in our Charity Prizedraw. As the afternoon becomes evening, join us back where the weekend began, the Regent Bar for Farewell drinks! d
....and remember, Bear Naked – discounted entry ALL WEEKEND with your full weekend pass: Get wet and horny at the Bear Sauna at Steamworks. Sunday afternoons are especially busy!
