February 2015 News
29th January 2015
Throughout the year the Out of Blue Drill Hall offers 360 degrees of creative offerings of many a hue. Many are the result of collaborations brought to us and some of Out of the Blue’s own initiation. One of the latter which is currently coming to the fore is the Gretna 100 Project, investigating, performing and exhibiting the impact of the great rail tragedy which the Drill Hall is associated.
Having undertaken research to inform the work of the Gretna 100 drama group, the research group meet again at Out of the Blue from 3pm-5pm on Mondays starting 2nd February. The group will focus on producing an exhibition which will be launched in May and become a permanent part of the Drill Hall. We are delighted to say that Leith’s Citizen Curator is on board to help create the exhibition.
Another interesting collaboration sees a very special February Bruncheon (14th) brought to you in conjunction with a new cultural organisation in Leith: Leith Creative. Live music will be provided by local Leith musicians, curated by William Douglas, and a whole host of tasty Bruncheon treats will be on offer from the OOTB Drill Hall cafe.
Likewise the cafe will serve: Wiff Waff Wednesday (11th) the ever popular social whirl of food, drink, music and ping pong; Flea Market (Jan 31st, Feb 28th); and classic food and film at Freeze Frame (20th).
