Dining in the sky

London: This is one up on roof-top, revolving restaurants. A dining hall virtually hanging in the sky, 100 feet above the ground.

The Festival in the Sky, a 22-seat dinner table hoisted into the air by a huge crane, will be the attraction at the Edinburgh Festival in England this August.

Each of the guests will be fastened into their chairs, which will rotate to allow diners to look out over the Edinburgh castle. Each sitting will last for half an hour, and guests can book in for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, according to Oli Norman, managing director of organisers Dada Ventures.

Councillor Steve Cardownie said: "Dining in the sky will be memorable enough, but, with the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, our world heritage site and the views across the river Forth, this will surely be an unforgettable experience."
