What to do this weekend: 22-23 July


Heverlee at New Waverley

Head to the New Waverley Arches this weekend - there is a cracking Belgian micro-festival is happening in the 'burgh, brought to you by Heverlee. They have teamed up with The Pitt, The Skinny and Firecracker Recordings, so there will be Belgian style streetfood, music, street art as well as cinema screenings by Kino Klub. Check out the full line-up on their Facebook event site. We are very much looking forward to munching on Belgian waffels, tasting some Heverlee limited brews and watching The Adventures of Tintin. Oh and we almost forgot the best news: it's free to enter!

Dunkirk on 70mm

If you are a true cinema lover, we recommend you watch Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk at the Filmhouse on 70mm. Make sure to book your ticket in advance - all Cinema 1 screenings will be 70mm, while Cinema 2 and 3 will screen from DCP.


Hungary and thirsty

Small promo for my home country - this weekend you have the opportunity to taste Hungarian cuisine and wines at the Edinburgh Food Studio. They might still have a few spots left, be quick if you don't want to miss the mangalica!

National Whisky Festival

The National Whisky Festival is coming to the Corn Exchange this Saturday. Exhibitors include Elements of Islay, Aelder Elixir from Buck and Birch, Arbikie, Glenfiddich and others. Buy your ticket here.


Wild Wine Fair

Timberyard at Lady Lawson Street is hosting Scotland's first dedicated natural wine fair. Athough tickets are sold out, you might still get on the waiting list. (Yep, sadly we were also too late to get tickets and hoping we get in from the waiting list!) The good news is that the after party is open to everyone and it is hosted by one of your favourite wine bars, the Good Brothers in Stockbridge.

Blondilox Pop-up

The lovely Blondilox will be popping up at Lululemon Edinburgh this Sunday between 11am and 1pm with a porridge and healthy snacks shop. Make sure to say hi to her and stock up on your favourite porridge blend.

Have a nice weekend!
