Edinburgh Palette Open Doors Event

All welcome.

The project will provide affordable shop space for local retail and hospitality businesses, animating the pedestrian promenade. It will also support the creative industries, the third sector, freelancers and micro-businesses, providing sought after high-quality studio and office space. When developed the building’s grounds will greatly enhance the public realm and greenspace in the area and will support active travel to and through the site. Other activities planned are play-based recreation and cultural events and the project will also provide improved access to the waterfront. Come down and meet the team to find out more!

Room for Music Teacher

Hive mind required! I’m wondering if anyone has a space or knows of a place, that could be let on a Friday for a small day fee in Willowbrae/Northfield/Portobello area. It may be a community space or it might be someone’s outdoor room – open to all ideas

The room would be used by a piano/harp teacher and primary students would be visiting for their 1 to 1 classes. If there is space for storage of a harp and electronic piano this would be a bonus but it can probably be worked around (or perhaps a piano is already there).

Please contact Phil at psdphotography@gmail.com if you know of anywhere.
