Party revellers be advised - thanks to some serious scaling back for ‘safety reasons’, only 100,000 free passes are up for grabs compared to more in recent years. Demand should be high, so get on the case and get yourself organised.

To apply for passes (two per application) via post, send an A4 size SAE to: Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, PO Box 2003, Edinburgh EH8 8XY. Application can’t be processed if you don’t enclose an A4 SAE and applications will only be accepted between Tuesday 1 October and Tuesday 15 October. Successful applicants will receive two passes each by mid November, while unsuccessful applicants will be also informed in writing.
