ALL WEEKEND

Open Close

We have just attended the launch event of Open Close which is part of the currently running Architecture Fringe festival. The Open Close project is a pilot for the Twelve Closes initiative of Edinburgh World Heritage to revitalise some of the unloved and unused closes of the Royal Mile. The Open Close consists of temporary art installations in three of the closes: Trunks Close, Chalmers Close and Carrubers Close. You can check out Open Close until 11 August.

15TH JULY, SATURDAY

Wild Pizza Making

How about some foraging and wild pizza making in a wood-fired outdoor oven at Jupiter Artland? The event is ran by experienced forager Lisa Cutcliffe and you can learn from her about nutritious plants, fungi and seaweeds.

16TH JULY, SUNDAY

Jazz Festival Carnival

The Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival has kicked off and it is running until 23 July. The ever popular Davina and The Vagabonds are back and there are quite a few Edinburgh Firsts too. Free events include Mardi Gras at Grassmarket this Saturday and the Festival Carnival this Sunday.

Have a nice weekend!
