THANK YOU to everyone for coming along at the weekend… this includes all the artists, volunteers, VIPs, guests, locals and those who travelled from further afield. Our total visiting numbers exceeded expectations (around 200, plus quite a few children, a baby and 4 dogs).
And on top of that: buyers came along and several artists sold….
Our planned series of six pop-up events has now drawn to a close and we are looking ahead to the future of granton:hub.
Please get in touch if you wish to share your views
