LeithLate is an annual multi-arts event that takes place over multiple venues in the space of one evening, immediately followed by an afterparty with live music showcase. LeithLate is essentially one huge art opening and in previous years, has presented work by the likes of Kevin Harman, Katie Orton, Omar Zingaro Bhatia and Ross Fraser McLean, as well as showcasing bands such as John Knox Sex Club, Remember Remember and Sparrow and the Workshop. Now coming into its fourth year and, after winning the Creative Edinburgh award for Outstanding Creative Contribution by a Creative Organisation in 2012, LeithLate continues to go from strength to strength, firmly establishing itself as a hotly-anticipated event on the Leith calendar.
LeithLate also runs other events and initiatives throughout the year, in addition to its annual multi-arts event. This includes The Shutter Project, where contemporary artists create bespoke artworks on the shutters of local Leith businesses, and The Mural Project, which involves the creation of large-scale outdoor murals for Leith by a collective of fine art and street artists. Please check our Projects page for more information. LeithLate last took place on Thursday 13th June and the next annual event is scheduled for June 2014.
