Hidden Door is a not for profit multi arts festival which begins on 25 May 2018. They have just begun their crowdfunder and are very keen for as much financial support as they can get.
With two venues to transform they have their work cut out. They are taking over Leith Theatre which is in reasonable order despite having been left to decay for over 30 years. Hidden Door used the venue very successfully last year and will return in 2018 with an array of music, theatre, visual art, film, dance and spoken word.
The other building is the former State Cinema which opened in 1938 and went on to become a bingo and nightclub venue before closing in 2004.
The 10 day festival has set a target of £7,000 for their crowdfunder which will assist in putting on the various events and you are promised gifts in return from tote bags to VIP festival access. While they are today very nearly almost at their stated goal, we are sure they can keep accepting donations to exceed that!
