I’ve had one of the busiest weeks in a long time, reminiscent of a typical Fringe week! It started off with a less than enjoyable visit to the Edinburgh Dungeons with the mini-Spotlight members but got better as the week went on.
I’ve been catching up on some of the hundreds of emails we get requesting to cover events, new bands and other exciting things going on in town. We have some really interesting and diverse features to publish in the coming weeks.
On Thursday I popped along to the Botanics for the launch of the Edinburgh Science Festival with an amazing programme in the Easter holidays. Tickets are on sale now.
On Friday I visited the new Steve Bloom exhibition at St Andrew Square. The outdoor exhibition is on until the 1st May and is absolutely stunning (also free).
The rest of the Edinburgh Spotlight team had a busy week at the theatre and all of the reviews can be found here.
Yesterday I made good use of the sunny weather in town and caught up with friends and family and re-visited a couple of places on the now-famous Edinburgh Cake Trail.
But the highlight of the week had to be trying out a new Secret Dining Club in Edinburgh. Not the excellent Charlie and Evelyn’s table, but a brand new one. So new in fact that it doesn’t have a name yet and was by private invitation only.
The opening of this club is perfect timing since Rachel and Chris who started Edinburgh’s first ever supper club are on a maternity break, but will be opening again later this year.
The new Secret Dining Club seats up to 18 people and future events will be held monthly. We’ll be the first to bring you the dates and all the information you need. The experience was entirely delightful and food exquisite. Secret Dining seems extremely popular in Edinburgh just now and it’s a great way to meet new people.
