A festival of art, politics an action
Midday to Midnight on the 2nd of July
at the Forest Café
The Forest is asking its friends and supporters to object to the proposed alterations to their current premises in Bristo Place. While the self-sufficient arts centre is looking for a new home, the new owners are seeking permission to alter the internal structure of the listed building. The planning application also includes proposals to open a restaurant at the site.

The Forest collective has pledged to use the sale of its current premises as a means to transform the organisation. In late May, the “For Sale” sign over the entrance to the building in Bristo Place was removed and the Forest was told that a buyer was found for the building. The sale is not yet complete, sources say the missives should be finalised soon. Despite this, the Forest is determined to still provide an arts space in Edinburgh that is free and accessible to all.
