What to do this weekend: 27-28 July
Edinburgh Art Festival
One of our favourite festivals, the Edinburgh Art Festival kicks off the ‘festival month’ this weekend. Major exhibitions of the fest include a Nathan Coley installation at the Parliament hall, Bridget Riley at the Royal Scottish Academy and Cut and Paste: 400 Years of Collage at the Modern Two. Signature events such as the Art Lates will make a return too along with a new Night walk for Edinburgh.
27TH JULY, SATURDAY
Canteen Street Food Festival
The Canteen street food fest returns to Archerfield Walled Garden this Saturday between 12-6pm. Stallholders include Harajuku Kitchen, Herringbone, Mimi’s Bakehouse and others. This month’s theme is vintage with clothes, furniture, homewares, records, flowers and plants and there will be a vintage car display too.
28TH JULY, SUNDAY
Gateway at Jupiter Artland
Jupiter Artland finally has a swimming pool! Yes, you read it right - the newest piece of artwork of Jupiter is titled Gateway by Joana Vasconcelos. The intricately designed pool sits within a landscaped formal garden and it is accompanied by a delicate glass dome space. Those lucky enough to grab tickets for the bathing sessions in August are in for a treat. We might prefer to observe the pool from a distance, afterall Scotttish summers are not famous for being hot. (Saying that the last few days have been super humid!)
Broadwoodside Open Day
Broadwoodside is a beautiful garden in Gifford, East Lothian and it is holding its annual charity open day this Sunday as part of the Scotland’s Garden Scheme. Opening hours are between 11am-5pm and entry is £6. Read more about the history of Broadwoodside here.
Have a nice weekend!
