Bellfield is re-opening and it’s time to party! Join us to celebrate the return of Bellfield as a community resource for Portobello on Saturday 23 June 2018.
Starting in the afternoon, there will be lots going on from piping, folk singing and story-telling, to have-a-go Capoeira and dancing sessions. Soup and sandwiches will be on offer from local foodies Green Kilt. The afternoon event is free and open to all ages – just drop by.
In the evening we’ll dim the lights and enjoy a rich spread of cabaret acts, including Dance Ihayami, Spanish/Scottish music collective Gallo Rojo, comic Keir McAllister and Edinburgh’s Russian Choir. The Skylark will be running the bar, and Green Kilt will be roasting up a BBQ feast.
Tickets for the Cabaret are £12 (£6 concessions) and available in person from The Skylark or Cove on Portobello High St, or online at Brown Paper Tickets (online booking fee applies). Please note – after 9pm at the cabaret some content may be unsuitable for children.
