Sketchy Beats Cafe
208 Great Junction Street, EH65LW Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Sketchy Beats will be doing a takeover of the Old State Cinema — inside the Art Deco building surrounding the cafe! This will be on the first Wednesday of Hidden Door — a non-profit arts festival opening up urban spaces for new and emerging artists, musicians, theatre makers, film makers, poets and performers.
We're still finalising the details but here's a bit of what to expect:
— A huge plugged-in jam session with 30+ musicians
— Improvisational dancers
— Live art
— Special lighting / visuals
— Sketch pads and art materials (for you to sketch the jam)
— Hand drums + other instruments (for you to join in the jam)
This will be a once in a lifetime experience as this beautiful space is due to be turned into flats in the next couple of years. We hope to see you there!
The event will be in two parts, with a film screening in between.
PART A — 12pm-6pm — FREE ENTRY
PART B — 8pm-11pm -TICKETED
Tickets to Part B will get you access to the entire cinema, including the basement, where there will be art installations and other events programmed. It will also give you access to the evening performances at the Leith Theatre. We'll soon be posting a Sketchy Beats discount code, so keep watching this page!
