Do you remember Leith Theatre? A new memory project has been set up jointly delivered by Leith Theatre Trust and Citadel Arts Group. They’re collecting memories of Leith Theatre to create a display and to put into a book of memories. The project is supported by £eith Decides and the Robertson Trust.
The first meeting will be in the Thomas Morton Hall (behind Leith Library, 28 Ferry Road) on Thursday 16th Feb 2-4pm. Katharine Taylor of Leith Theatre Trust will make a short presentation and then we’ll start to share stories and memories of the theatre and the varied events held there. Refreshments will be served.
Please come along just to listen or share your own stories and memories. If you can’t make the meeting on 16th Feb but have stories to share, please let us know and we can arrange to meet you at another time and place if that’s easier for you.
All the best
