Hi, I'm Ildiko

What to do this weekend: 27-28 May

Hidden Door Festival

This year's Hidden Door Festival takes you to the derelict old Leith Theatre. We can't wait to explore this stunning art deco building and enjoy some live music, cinema, spoken word and visual art. The festival is running between 26th May and 4th June - the entry is free between noon and 6pm, ticketed afterwards.

Dundee Design Festival

Meanwhile at Dundee West Ward Works, the former print works will be hosting this year's Design Festival. Last March at the Dundee Instameet I was lucky to visit this cool building and spent hours with fellow grammers photographing it. Totally worth the trip from Edinburgh!


Foodie Saturday

Plenty of foodie events happening in town this weekend from Dinner at Jupiter to Pomo d'Oro at Edinburgh Food Studio. Also did we mention that The Pantry at Colinton is now open?


The Other Side of Hope

If you missed Aki Kaurismäki's new film in February at the Glasgow Film Festival, this is your chance to watch it. Filmhouse is showing The Other Side of Hope this weekend and I managed to convince Mr Enthusiast to join me (he's usually not a fan of the weird foreign movies I pick). If you liked Le Havre or you're a fan of Finnish deadpan humour you should not miss this one.

Have a nice weekend!
