Space Hire

Medium Room

We now have space hire opportunities at Madelvic House, including room hire and exhibition space. Room hire costs start from £10 an hour, and weekend exhibition space (for both the large and medium sized rooms) is £50, plus 10% commission on any work sold. Find out more here.


Hidden Gems

You can visit Madelvic House on Thursday 13 July as part of Pilton Community Health Project’s Hidden Gems walk, which this week is themed around Granton’s Industrial Past. The walk begins at 7pm at Granton Square; and members of the history:hub will be on hand to show visitors the history archive and answer any questions. You can find out more information about the route this particular walk (and others) will take here.

Ten silver birches


The scrapstore containers and  Fountainbridge  trees are safely in place!  This operation was not without its difficulties and apologies to any neighbours disturbed in the process.  Rain nearly brought the whole process to a muddy halt, but the lorry was finally dug out of its hole and those of us wading in mud dried out in the end.  The tree move was no less difficult, but you agree it was worthwhile as the beautiful silver birches sway in the breeze and attract birds into their branches.

Edinburgh Scrapstore

We are happy to announce that the Edinburgh Scrap Store has arrived in the community garden from its former home in Fountainbridge!
This is a unique resource where scrap materials can be donated, stored, collected by members and re-used, including textiles, paper, paint and tiles.
We will shortly announce opening days and times soon, but in the meantime you can read more about the Scrap Store on its website:
