Big News from The Wee Theatre on the ground floor!

DSCN2084 smaller

In case you didn’t know, thanks to its previous tenants from Discover 21, St Margaret’s House holds a gem of a space on the ground floor: a proper little theatre!

  • We aim to make it a creative space dedicated to children, young people and their families.
  • It will also be a space to nurture creativity and emerging work for and by children.
  • To this intent, we plan to accommodate events, shows and creative classes that would require the unique space the theatre is.

Special announcement | Open Studios 2016

Emma-Open-for-artSt Margaret’s House is an inclusive, creative community where arts, enterprise and communities are able to co-exist and collaborate. Despite its size, the building often feels hidden in plain sight. Therefore we open our doors once a year to let the public see all that goes on here.

This year, we plan to open for art on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October 2016. There are three exhibitions featuring St Margaret’s residents opening that weekend, so we cautiously expect good footfall already.

We are sure you will immediately want to cancel all other plans – weddings, birthdays, holidays, etc. (Please note that Edinburgh Palette cannot be held liable for any charges incurred from cancelled travel arrangements).
