Only during the Festivals… pop-ups and surprises
I love this time of year, when Edinburgh is stuffed full of
performers and bursting with festival-goers.
At the same time, it seems that everywhere you look there’s a
pop-up bar, a stage, or an ordinarily inconspicuous building that suddenly
opens its doors to the public and becomes a multi-room venue.
I love the tiny secret outdoor garden that you access from
the very end of the walkway above Victoria Street. Last year they did lovely
crepes and coffee. There’s a great view over the rooftops of the Old Town and
it’s a favourite spot for camera crews to conduct interviews with acts making a
splash at the Festivals.
Has anyone spotted any exciting pop-ups this year? I'll post pictures of everything I find this weekend.
