The Bottom Rung Big Beat Festival (2011)

We organised this weekend event in 2011 to help save Edinburgh’s Forest Cafe, that was threatened with closure at it’s superb venue in an old church. The Forest Cafe is a volunteer-run, collectively-owned, free arts and events project now located at 141 Lauriston Place, Edinburgh, EH3 9JN.

All bands, all Scottish based, very kindly offered to play for free…and we didn’t charge admission…and people brought their own drink. We asked for (and received!) donations to the Forest Cafe.
