24 Doors of Advent - Second Weekend

As massive fans of Doors Open Day, we eagerly await its mini-version in each December: the 24 Doors of Advent. Every day between 1-24 December a door of a special building opens for free to the public. This weekend's doors are Custom House and the Robert Burns Monument. There will be also special programmes accompanying the open day at both locations, so it's very much worth popping along.


Christmas fairs and pop-ups

There are quite a few Christmas fairs and pop-ups happening this weekend, so we collected our favourites:


Edinburgh Street Photography

Unseen archives from the 50s to the 70s of our beloved city - the perfect way to escape the crowds and the freezing cold weather outside and get transported back to the past through beautiful photos. The exhibition is at the City Art Centre, free entry.



Mansfield Traquair Open Day

Not part of the 24 Doors of Advent, but Mansfield Traquair will also open its doors for a few hours this Sunday between 1-4pm. Don't miss this chance to see the stunning building if you have not yet been.

Foram Supper Club

The last Foram Supper Club of the year is happening this Sunday night at the beautiful Porteous Studio - we cannot wait! The previous dinner was hosted at Aesop and we're still dreaming about the most amazing dessert the guys created in cooperation with Mary's Milkbar. Hoping the miso ice cream will make a return!  Book your tickets here, delicious food and great wine is guaranteed.

Have a nice weekend!
