The Penicuik Arts Festival 2010 builds on the home-grown success of the first three festivals and the Penicuik Arts Trail begun four years ago. It brings together a fortnight of arts events organised by the volunteers of two local arts charities, Penicuik Community Development Trust and Penicuik Community Arts Association, plus a handful of individual artists and performers, the Penicuik House Project and other local organisations, with the help of the Community Council and space and support from local shops and restaurants. It’s timed to chime with the nearby Edinburgh and Peebles festivals. You’ll find a mixed program of exhibitions and workshops and events for all ages. Contact 01968 672706 or 677854. Although the Penicuik Arts Festival is a concentrated celebration it’s part of a flow of exhibitions, events and films arranged by community volunteers right through the year - explore some recent events here.
Penicuik Arts Festival 2010 is arranged in conjunction with Penicuik Community Council, Penicuik Community Arts Association, and Penicuik Community Development Trust: PCDT Charity Number SCO37990.

The Gallery Cafe is the heart of the Arts Centre at 4 West Street. On Monday to Saturday from 10 till 4, (and sometimes at festival time on Sundays), it’s run by a handful of our members and known for friendly atmosphere and tasty food: home-made-soups, cakes and biscuits. Beyond the cafe is the sheltered sun garden for eating out on warmer days. With a good cup of coffee, you can enjoy the gallery all around you. Two exhibitions are featured here in the café during the Festival. And upstairs throughout the Festival is Penicuik’s Annual Exhibition.
The upstairs gallery is the main venue for Penicuik Community ArtsAssociation’s big annual exhibition and Turner Prize for the duration of the Festival. a great intimate space for exhibitions and events. For years local and international performers have enjoyed the close-up rapport with the audience here. They keep coming back for more!
