Cowgate’s First Pop-Up Market

08 December 2014 -

Cowgate_Pop_Up_Fly

On December 13th, Cowgate venues will open their doors for an event quite unlike most others they usually host…

Bringing together Edinburgh’s creative community and showcasing venues that you may otherwise not think to visit, you’ll find a multi-venue pop-up arts & crafts, clothing, vintage, music and food market. For those of you who have been to London – think of Brick Lane with it’s unusual pop-up shops and vintage/arts markets.

Many of the Cowgate venues sit empty in the daytime despite the possibility of opening. To some, you may know them only as nightclubs or late-night bars, but they hold a much more special place in the hearts of those who work there or frequent these spaces.

As a bar manager at a music venue, I’ve watched how the area seems to turn to a ghost town outside of the Festival in August. My hope is that this event will give Edinburgh’s artists, musicians and creatives (of all kinds!) the chance to meet one another, showcase their talent and hopefully bring some new faces to the area.
