12feb6:30 pm8:30 pmStorytelling: Sounds and smells of Edinburgh's coast


Event Details

Did you try to get the smell of fish boxes off your best clothes before your parents found out what you had been doing? Do you remember the lovely smell of kippers or the chocolate smell from Duncan’s, the paraffin smell from Wilson’s Ironmongers or the strange, sulphur smell? Do you remember the sound of the oystercatchers? Did the cacophony from the rookery in Granton Dell drive your mother mad? Did different noises mark out different times of day? Was it all noisier? How long has the accordion man being playing tunes on Portobello promenade? What are today’s sounds and smells?

Come along bring the family for a stroytelling session with Jan Bee Brown. Share and rediscover connections to sounds and smells of Edinburgh’s coast. Bring items related to a piece of tarred rope, an old bicycle bell, a snatch of song, an accordion, a lemon and a bottle of whisky, but please, no dead fish!
