‘We hire a space in Edinburgh every summer to accommodate our small, creative, post graduate level classes in Performance Design. This year we are basing ourselves at granton:hub for 4 weeks.

This is an ideal venue for us, with a good light space, desks and tables, wifi and access to projection facilities. There is also good bus connections to different parts of the city and free parking available.’
