Granton Archive Project (local history hub) drop-in sessions

12 March 2024

Are you interested in Edinburgh local history? Did you know there used to be a circus school in North Edinburgh? Perhaps you have heard about local residents’ dynamic community activism in the 1970s?

We have photographs, films, newspapers and much more that will bring the past alive, and we invite you to come and explore our Granton Archive Project and History Hub. Every Tuesday from 1-4pm, you can search the archives, chat and make friends with other visitors and our Development Worker, Tamsin Grainger.

Tea and biscuits will be on offer and the room is warm and cosy.

We are always keen for new volunteers, so if you are interested in local history and fascinated about your local area, let us know and we can chat about what is involved. Our website is and look for the Granton Archive Project page. You can also find us on

We look forward to meeting you.
