The OOTB Drill Hall is offering up 4 exhibitions in July. Citizen Curator and Jan Bee Brown’s Seven of the 7th explores the impact on Leith and its people of the Gretna rail disaster. The exhibition includes The Tree of Life, produced in partnership with Pilmeny Youth Centre and artist Heather Scott, which pupils from Leith Academy helped to create.(until 13th August, Mon – Sat) The exhibition is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Meanwhile always talking, must try harder is an exhibition of new works by Edinburgh based Badatmath featuring monochrome oil portraits of the artists’ personal heroes (29th June – 8th July)

The Retina Scottish Photography Festival celebrates both the best in the world of photography and new and emerging talent from Scotland (14th – 24th July)

The Stalkers and Divas exhibition at the end of July includes the work of 10 different artists, offering a glimpse into their worlds (28th – 31st July)

If you like quality music with your breakfast, our July Bruncheon (11th) will mix the Cafe’s breakfast delights with a unique blend of gypsy folk hop, psychedelic tribal bounce music and organic punk…….from PORTNAWAK & THE WOO. Bring pals, neighbours, grannies and children – there’ll be something for everyone.

The regular Flea Market (27th June and 25th July) and Wiff Waff Wednesday (8th) will act as a perfect foil to the imminent delights of Edinburgh’s August.
