leith swri speed crafting bannerUPDATE: NOW FULLY BOOKED. Leith Festival 2015: Speed Crafting. For one night only…come and see what the Scottish Women’s Institute gets up to – five crafts, five tables, twenty minutes each and a whistle! Crafty experts and crafty virgins all equally welcome! 7-9.30pm (please arrive in time to start promptly at 7.30), MacDonald Sporrans, 170b Great Junction Street. All welcome – you don’t have to be a member to come along, and men are welcome at this event too – but you must be over 18. Materials, equipment and a welcome drink are all provided free (thanks to HLF funding) but booking is essential as there are just 60 places and last year this event was full. Contact LeithWRI@gmail.com for more information and to book – please note that joining the event on Facebook is not enough to secure your place, (although it’s still a good idea to do so so that you get any updates).

Lunchtime Concert: Charles Whitehead. %
