Morningside Festival

Sep 28 - Oct 1 2006

Following the announcement in February 2006 that there is to be no Meadows Festival this year, community leaders in Morningside have announced plans to hold a Morningside Festival from Sep 28 to Oct 1, 2006. 

This will coincide with the weekend of 'Doors Open Day' in Edinburgh.  The organisers hope that the festival will become an annual event.

The 2006 Morningside Festival is expected to include:

-   an open air street party in Nile Grove.

-   a historical drama production, based on the Workers' Education Association's book Morningside Memories

-   a series of short films at the Dominion Cinema

-   a children's poetry competition.

-   an exhibition from archives in Morningside Library.

-  a ceilidh dance in the Merlin bar-restaurant.
