26 September 2015 – 27 September 2015
The Cockburn Association (Edinburgh’s Civic Trust) organises Edinburgh Doors Open Day. Now in its 25th year, the event has become one of the capital’s most popular free days out. This is your chance to explore some of Edinburgh’s most architecturally, culturally and socially significant buildings. Many venues feature behind the scenes tours, activities, exhibitions and/or talks which bring the history of the building, garden, cemetery or monument and its everyday use to life. Some sites organise additional free activities for children and families.
We will be opening our doors from 10am to 4pm on 26th September, and 12pm to 4pm on 27th September. Our café will be open as usual on both days, but guided tours and info will only be available during the stated times!

Everyone had a lovely talk and taster of Bill McGillivray (ex-community worker based in West Pilton, Missioner and Magician) last Wednesday. He entertained and baffled us all as well as made us all laugh. Thanks Bill.
This continues our monthly talk series which is proving very popular with our members and supporters alike.
