05dec7:30 pm9:30 pm'Sounds and smells of Edinburgh's coast': Storytelling with Jan Bee Brown


Event Details

Sounds and smells of Edinburgh’s coast is being hosted by The Edinburgh Shoreline project and Traditional Arts & Culture Scotland, with Jan Bee Brown setting the mood with one of her evocative stories.

Many of our memories are triggered by past scents or sounds. People with long term connections to Edinburgh’s coast are being invited to rediscover and share their relationships to its particular sounds and smells.

Do you remember the lovely smell of kippers or the chocolate smell from Duncan’s? Do you remember the sound of the oystercatchers? How long has the accordion man being playing tunes on Portobello promenade?

Feel free to bring along any objects you’d like to share with the group.

Spaces are limited so please book your place using our Eventbrite page:
