Well, that’s the Leith Festival past the half way point – just the remainder of today, Friday and Saturday to go. Plus the Junction Bridge concert and Irvine Welsh on Sunday.
It’s all been a bit varied this year, some events have been very well attended but there seems to be quite a bit of apathy too. It does get me down sometimes when you think of all the work that goes on behind the scenes then people can’t be arsed to go to the events.
Some of the events are very good indeed, people have commented that they were pleasently surprised. One of the stars seems to be the Thermos flask museum in the Kirkgate which, at first glance, might not sound too interesting. But, it’s a hoot apparently.
Radio Four had a phone in a while ago asking for opinions on the greatest invention ever made. Louise phoned in and nominated the Thermos flask. It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold, but the best part is, how does it know? A great invention.
