About Leith100 : Light-Up Leith History Mural

FREE OUTDOOR EVENT

8pm - 10pm - Light-Up Mural (Book Time-Slot)

7:30pm - 9pm - Food at Leith Theatre (Drop-In)

Come see the Leith History Mural in a whole new LIGHT!

Due to popular demand we are bringing back this FREE outdoor event - this time for a total of 10 NIGHTS!

Tim Chalk and Paul Grime’s mural installed in 1986 depicts Leith's rich and varied social history. Double-Take Projections have artistically re-imagined the mural through light projections using the artists' original artworks, adding beautiful animations and a bespoke soundscape.

But feasting your eyes is not the only feast of the evening...

LeithLate is also teaming up with the amazing organisation Empty Kitchens Full Hearts (EKFH), who provide meals on a daily basis to over 500 individuals facing food insecurity. Each night of this event, between 19:30 - 21:00, EKFH are opening up to the public and event attendees, serving their high-quality meals nextdoor in the outdoor collonade at Leith Theatre. You can purchase some delicious scran to help them raise funds and continue with their vital work in the community.

Attendance to the Light-Up Leith History Mural is free but ticketed. Time-slots throughout each evening are bookable in advance in order to ensure the amount of people viewing at any given time will be able to maintain a safe social distance.

Whilst attending the event, please be respectful of other people's space and help us mitigate any Covid-19 risk by keeping a 2m distance from other attendees. We would also recommend audience members wear a face covering while attending the event.

The Leith History Mural is located on the corner of Ferry Road and North Junction Street, next to Leith Library and Leith Theatre. Projections will run throughout each evening on a loop.

This event is part of LeithLate's Leith100 programme marking 100 years since the amalgamation of Leith with the City of Edinburgh.

The event is made in collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Curating Conversations across the Arts research project, with funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
