Coming up

World Book Night on Wednesday 23rd April - celebrate with us by trying to pick up a free book in the Co-op in Longniddry (between 5 and 6pm - ish)  but don't worry if you miss out on that - go along to the library instead where we’ll be relaxing with a good book and a complementary cup of tea or coffee from 6.30pm to 7.30pm

Knitted herring have been arriving in their shoals at The Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh, ready for an exhibition in May. A series of workshops with artist Linda McCann are taking place over the next few weeks so if you'd like to knit and craft different sea creatures, seagulls, nets and rocks, you're welcome to join in the fun.
