Press Release: FOREST LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO BUY BRISTO PLACE HOME
The Forest has launched a campaign to buy its current home in Bristo Place. The fundraising follows last week’s news that the sale of the premises has collapsed. The Forest has sought to find a permanent home since Edinburgh University Settlement was declared bankrupt last year. Recent developments have created the opportunity for Edinburgh’s open-access multi-arts venue to buy its home of the last eight years.
Press Release: FOREST CAFÉ STUNNED BY PWC DECISION

FOREST CAFÉ STUNNED AT PWC DECISION
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have said they would rather leave a building empty than receive rent to help pay off the creditors they are supposed to be representing. PwC are the administrators for Edinburgh University Settlement, who were declared bankrupt and forced into administration last October. The decision follows the collapse of the sale for several buildings previously owned by EUS. PWC have said they would not consider the Forest as tenants for the former Edinburgh Congressional Church in Bristo Place despite being the sitting tenant and the only party willing to rent the premises.
Ragged are just getting ready for the workshops and events this week at the Forest Cafe. We have a few places left on our Ragged Theatre Workshops where we will be prepareing a rehearsed reading of banned and censored texts for presentation on Thursday 11th at 7:30pm.
So if any of your friends wish to come along let me know by sending me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org! (Open to over 15yers old.)
