Artist Rooms: Roy Lichtenstein

Modern One (Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art), 13th March - January 2016

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is an excellent way to spend an afternoon, and with the arrival of the new Roy Lichtenstein exhibition there's even more of a reason to get yourself along this April.

Lichtenstein is considered one of the most radical and influential artists of the twentieth century, most notably within the movement known as pop art alongside the likes of Andy Warhol. He is best known for work such as Whaam!, the most famous of his comic strip-based work.

This exhibition features a newly assembled group of works by Lichtenstein, and runs until January 2016.

Edinburgh International Science Festival

Various venues, 4th - 19th April

The Edinburgh International Science Festival has been running for over 20 years, aiming to engage with and educate people of all ages and encourage them to take a closer look at the world around them.

Handily organised to coincide with the school Easter holidays, the festival has a huge range of exciting and educational activities for the whole family at venues across the city, with the City Art Centre, Summerhall, the National Museum of Scotland and the Royal Botanic Gardens changed into 'The Ideas Factory' for 2 weeks in April.

With innovative workshops to late night events, the festival features something for everyone in the wonderful world of science and technology, from dinosaurs to the human brain to space and everything in between.

The Scotch Whisky Training School

Scottish Whisky Experience, Thursday 16th April

A slightly more luxurious option on the list at £195 (including lunch and refreshments), this is a truly unique experience for the whisky lovers out there.

Beltane Fire Festival

Calton Hill, Thursday 30th April

A cherished event on the calendar of many Edinburgh residents, this festival is inspired by the ancient Gaelic festival Beltane which historically marked the beginning of summer.

The festival has grown considerably in size over the years, and features dancing, drumming, acrobatics and - of course - fire. Taking place across Calton Hill, thousands come every year to see the procession of over 300 volunteers and performers act out the story of the changing of the seasons. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and is nothing short of spectacular.

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time

Edinburgh Festival Theatre, 27th April - 9th May
