What's on next?

Thanks to all those who came to Northern Streams as performers, volunteers, participants and audience members - there were many memorable moments - even if not all of them were planned!

Our next gathering is the regular Singers Session in our new venue - The Canon's Gait, 232 Canongate, Edinburgh, EH8 8DQ: downstairs bar (buy drinks upstairs) from 8-11pm. All are welcome on Tuesday 14 May, and due to the date it is part of Voluntary Arts Week (11-19 May 2013). Visit for more details!

And from then on, the session is on every second Tuesday of the month except during August.

New location for our monthly Singers' Sessions from May

The location of our monthly Singer's Session will change from next month - Tuesday 14 May. Our New Venue is The Canon's Gait, 232 Canongate, Edinburgh, EH8 8DQ: downstairs bar (buy drinks upstairs).

Otherwise arrangements will be exactly as before - time: 8.00. - All welcome to sing (accompanied or not), tell a story or just listen. As ever, we would be delighted to see any new or returning faces.

It would also be great if any readers who run singing groups or classes could pass the details to their members/students.

Sessions will always be on the SECOND TUESDAY of each month, except in August.

Many thanks to The Royal Oak pub for allowing us to hold sessions there for the last couple of years.
