28nov7:30 pm9:30 pm'What did you call it?': Storytelling with Tim Porteus


Event Details

The Edinburgh Shoreline project and Traditional Arts & Culture Scotland are hosting an evening discovering and discussing the names that people living along Edinburgh’s Coast used to call places and people. How many of these have survived and are there more recent ones? Who remembers where the Cinder Mire was, or knows where the Penny Bap Stone has been moved to? Did you and your friends make cleeks to catch partans? And who was the Toffee Cup woman?

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