As approved suppliers for the City of Edinburgh Council, for the last two years running we had the pleasure to film the Citrus Saturday Edinburgh events with exciting locations like Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Botanic Garden, Cameron Toll, Gyle Shopping Centre and Edinburgh Zoo.
The project teaches pupils how to be enterpreneurs, from business planning to marketing and selling. Each group of students had to make their own citrus soft drinks and also prepare and run a stall to sell them.
With the help of their Edinburgh University mentors, the pupils worked like true professionals. They showed great initiative skills by making and naming their own lemonade recipes and also finding creative ways to boost sales. The reward to their motivation came in the form of many happy customers!
How to get a great timelapse
You just need a camera and a bit of patience! Have a look at the timelapse of Edinburgh Castle we filmed for Citrus Saturday 2013.
Citrus Saturday 2013
Citrus Saturday took place in Edinburgh on Saturday, 20th of April 2013. This year was even bigger than the previous one! The video we produced for the event in 2012 helped encouraging more schools and new venues to become part of the project. Big success!
50 pupils from 5 schools were involved in setting up and running their own business, a lemonade stand, for the day. Stands were located at the following venues:
- Cameron Toll Shopping Centre
- Edinburgh Castle
- Edinburgh Zoo
- Gyle Shopping Centre
- Royal Botanic Garden

Citrus Saturday 2012
A pilot Citrus Saturday was held in Edinburgh on 21st April 2012 which offered 20 pupils from two local schools, aged 12-15, the opportunity to set up and run their own lemonade stand business for a day. The pupils made a total sales of £500 and sold 485 drinks from stalls in Cameron Toll Shopping Centre and The Royal Botanic Gardens. The kids were supported by 9 student mentors recruited by Edinburgh University Student’s Association. The day was based on the Citrus Saturday format which was developed by UCL Advances in London.
The project received fantastic feedback! Check out the video of the event below:
