Hi Fellow Foresters
You may have all noticed that things at the Forest Cafe are getting a bit on the quiet side
To paraphrase Mr Strummer ‘We fought the law and the law won’ and due to council restrictions we are no longer able to host any live music events. So as of the 19th April we can’t take any more band bookings.
We’re pretty devastated by this, as you know as a volunteer non profit organisation we’ve always been keen to support the music scene in Edinburgh. Whether your a new band cutting your teeth,or an established act trying out new material, the Forest has always been there for you.
We are fighting this though and speaking to the council, to see what we need to do to so the Forest can resume with live music events. So if any of you folks have friends in high places let them know of the Forests plight. We are also working with the council to clarify what we can and can’t do in the space, so don’t be shy coming over and having a chat with one of our volunteers if there’s something you’d like the Forest to help you out with.
In the meantime to keep the fires burning we will be launching the Forest Big Night Out at Old St Paul’s, a monthly music event, the first of which will be 18th May. Keep your eyes peeled for further details
