Essential Edinburgh

Sponsors of the school programme, Essential Edinburgh was formed on 1st July 2008 after a positive Business Improvement District (BID) ballot result was recorded. Following a positive renewal ballot on 24th May 2018, the third term of the BID commenced on 1st July 2018 and will run until 30th June 2023.

Essential Edinburgh’s vision is to ensure that Edinburgh city centre excels as a place to work, a place to do business, a place to shop and a place to visit.

“Essential Edinburgh is delighted to be a partner to the hugely exciting Giraffe About Town creative trail. It will be fantastic to see the sculpture all around our wonderful city this summer, as well as contributing to the vital work of supporting wildlife preservation.

We are very pleased to be able to support the school programme and are looking forward to seeing the finished sculptures come to life.

I am sure they will generate huge interest and we look forward to welcoming families paying the ‘wee herd’ a visit, and all residents and visitors following the trail through the city centre.”

Roddy Smith, CEO, Essential Edinburgh
