Event Details

Fountainbridge Canalside Community Trust are pleased to be organising the Edinburgh Canal Festival for the second year running and bringing forward some of the traditional elements of past festivals together with some new partners, to make it a real celebration of social enterprise and local community groups that operate on or near the canal, year-round. We’re delighted this year to dedicate one of our zones as a ‘Climate Fringe’ event with a focus on climate and sustainability. Highlights include a pop-up clothes repair workshop from the Shrub Co-op and well as experts from Heriot-Watt University on hand to chat about Past Climates, and how they can help us find out about the massive contribution that tiny fossils have in unravelling past climate change. They have a special microscope to look at samples from the ocean floor as well as and local canal and some kids activities too. Also Hannah from the Edinburgh Seed Network will have some inspiring chat and activities about how important seeds are in building a regenerative culture! Outside the Bainfield Venue, on Fountainbridge Green, we’re delighted to host stalls from other partners including Rhyze Mushrooms and the Cargo Bike Movement!
