Glasdon UK's Modus Recycling Housings and Visage™ Screen System will make a big impression at this year's Edinburgh Festival.

The largest annual cultural event in the world, the Edinburgh Festival comprises dozens of independent programmes of theatre, comedy, dance, music and film taking place in the city simultaneously. Throughout the month of August, thousands of performers and millions of visitors descend on the historic city to celebrate the arts.

The role of Glasdon in the 2013 festival began more than two years ago when representatives of Edinburgh City Council visited our head office in Blackpool to learn more about the Modus Recycling Housing. The Council ordered two units with fully customised wrap-around graphics to place in parks in the city as a trial.

The success of the Modus Housings attracted the attention of the Council's Chief Executive, and for the 2013 Festival, Edinburgh purchased a number of Modus and Visage units (in consultation with our Scotland representative) for use in Princes Street Gardens - one of the busiest parks in the city, and a popular lunch spot for tourists - which sees an enormous amount of litter generated every day.

Edinburgh's new units were extensively customised with high-resolution graphics, showing photographs of Edinburgh in days gone by. Modus and Visage have been a big hit with the public - we've even spotted tourists posing for photos next to them!
