Back in December, the Cowgate played host to a massive, one-day pop-up, multi-venue arts/flea market.  Powered by Edinburgh’s creative community, a simple idea was brought to life.  On Easter Saturday, it’s happening again, with a whole heap of art, craft, fashion, music and food on sale and a dozen Cowgate venues opening their doors: Movement, Opium, Sneaky Pete’s, Dropkick Murphy’s, Three Sister’s, Brewdog, The Mash House, La Belle Angele, City Cafe, Cabaret Voltaire, Pilgrim and The Bongo Club. If you’ve ever been to London, think of Brick Lane’s markets, tucked away behind doors and shutters.  Aiming to bring the vibe back to the area, the Cowgate Pop-Up is a unique event.
