Creel o’ Stories
Sunday 21st May 2017This event has passed.

Storyteller Jan Bee Brown will be bringing her Creel o’ Stories to the galleries, specialising in stories about the places where we live and love, linking history, museum objects and local tales.

The willow creel carries feisty fables of Edinburgh’s fishwives and Jan will be asking the public to fish for stories.  For each of the individual letters that make up EDINBURGH there will be an object, a story or a song attached.

No need to book, just drop in.

Show times

1pm - 4pm


Enjoy a visit to the City Art Centre, a main Edinburgh art gallery with one of the best collections of Scottish art. We show interesting exhibitions from our own collections and from all over the world. Come and see favourites from the our Nationally Significant Collection of Scottish art; new work from local or international artists or exhibitions from other countries. Exhibitions of historic and modern photography, contemporary art and design, architecture and the built environment are staged in a rolling programme. An escalator and lift help you move around six floors, and you can be refreshed by sampling the menus in the café, or buy art books, cards, handbags and jewellery from our ground floor shop.
