"Exhibitions, interventions, mural tours and a Lost Map Records afterparty at the four-day LeithLate festival"
"THIS event, part of LeithLate 17, proved to be rather special."
"Back when the annual LeithLate mini-festival of art, music and general cultural congregation first arrived in 2011, Leith was a different place."
"...a frankly visionary festival which captures the essence of Leith as it is now, and which deserves to thrive and grow in future."
"AN old police box, a back garden and a Chinese supermarket will be turned into mini art galleries as an annual festival gets under way on Leith Walk."
"Bigger and bolder than before, LeithLate is spreading its wings and making Edinburgh’s iconic area ever more culturally vital"
"LeithLate producer Morvern Cunningham and commisioned artist Rabiya Choudhry talk LeithLate16, the arts and making money"
"WORK by a string of modern-day Edinburgh poets will appear on billboard advertising on the streets of the city"
"From one night to one weekend to four months... LeithLate15 really has outgrown its name."
"ONE of Scotland’s greatest ever artists has been immortalised in a striking new mural - on a derelict shop front."
"We’re on the trail of a bold new street art project in Leith – a graffiti grand design – far from city centre art galleries. It’s tucked away down a side street so you have to seek it out which adds to the adventure."
"Sterling art and music evening based on and around Leith Walk"
"Back for a third year, Leith’s sprawling, many-venued, multi-arts night out returns, showcasing over 30 artists and performers across 17 venues."
"For years it's been a blight on the area but now the opinion on street art is changing in Leith as it is used to brighten shop shutters."
"A Barber's shop, an ambulance depot, a former army drill hall and a charity shop are among the venues for a three-hour cultural extravaganza taking place in the Capital next month."
"…the Shutter Project will invite six artists to decorate the steel security shutters of six local businesses in the coming months, transforming stark, utilitarian bits of street furniture into colourful installations."
"Leith Late is back on 28 June, uniting the creative spaces of Leith for a one-night-only festival of the arts."
"Celebrating creative life in what is now surely the capital’s most interesting street, LeithLate returns for a second year on Thursday 28 June when a night of quirky invention will spread along Leith Walk."
"On 16 June, for one night only, ten galleries, pubs and shops on Leith Walk will open late to host a series of free events, gigs and exhibitions ending with an afterparty."
"HISTORICALLY, Edinburgh’s Dundas Street, in the heart of the New Town, has been the main centre for buying and selling art in the capital...but in the past few years a very different part of the city has started to make a name for itself as an art mecca: Leith Walk."
"As the annual Leith Festival returns for a ten-day run in June, one event that's not part of the official programme deserves particular attention."
"It's one of the transforming powers of art that it can help change the way we see familiar things, not least the places where we live...but it can rarely have worked so brilliantly, and on such a slender, unpretentious shoestring, as it does on the midsummer evening every year when Morvern Cunningham launches the Leith Late Festival, a brief but joyful celebration of creative life in and around Leith Walk."
"LeithLate is such a striking success that the only question is why this kind of event doesn’t happen at least once a month in neighbourhoods all across Scotland, rather than just once a year, in Leith."
"When...the first LeithLate event [was held] in 2011, it was a one-off, single evening art and music crawl around the shops and art spaces of Leith Walk and its environs, with each venue holding pop-up performances and exhibits. By 2014 it had stretched to two days, but this year has brought a quantum leap of ambition."
