April 2019 News

Monday 1st April 2019

The Out of the Blue Drill Hall is a Category A listed building reflecting its history and architecture. Since Out of the Blue bought the Drill Hall utilising support from Triodos Bank and Social Investment Scotland, it’s become a hive of activity reflecting the needs of our various communities. April features an eclectic mix of events including the infamous Puppet Animation Festival, the energetic Cycle Fair, beautiful exhibitions featuring the vivid colours of Riso printing, gritty black and white photography, and crafted landscape, seascape and abstract painting. Markets, music, and a variety of vibrant social events with delicious food and drink lovingly created by the Drill Hall cafe, utilise the versatility of Out of the Blue’s spectacular atrium.

  • Covid-19 restrictions

    Edinburgh is in COVID Protection Level 4 with current restrictions essentially returning us to a position similar to the lockdown of last March.

    Our buildings will consequently be temporarily closed to the public until further notice, but we very much hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

    Stay safe and well.

  • Cafe Opening Hours


    The Drill Hall Cafe is temporarily closed to conform with COVID Protection Level 4 restrictions until further notice.

  • Donate

    Over the course of 2021 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
