Staff tour of Craighouse

Artlink organised a tour of Craighouse. It was so well attended we had to split the tour into two groups. The tour was led by Gordon Mcletchie. For those who don’t know, in the 1880s, Dr Thomas Clouston, Physician Superintendent of the Edinburgh Lunatic Asylum (later the Royal Edinburgh Hospital), oversaw the purchase of Craig House by the managers of the Asylum in 1878. The site was intended for paying patients, and development was funded through the sale of land at the existing Asylum in Morningside. Craighouse was sold to Napier University in the 1980’s.

The first public singing event for the Heart & Soul Singsters.

The Royal Edinburgh Hospital singing group the Heart and Soul Singsters join forces with the Edinburgh University Music Society chorus for a mass sing in the Georgian Gallery at the Talbot Rice Gallery.

Part of a programme of activities and events to celebrate 200 years of the hospital the mass sing will be a fun event to experiment with the acoustics of the gallery and for people to experience singing as part of a big group.

There will be an open rehearsal to practice the songs we will be singing at the event which anyone is welcome to join from 5.30 – 6.30pm on the Friday. If you can’t make the rehearsal everyone attending the event will be welcome to sing or hum along.
