You will find on this page details about heritage and civic events relating to Edinburgh and its immediate neighbourhood, hosted either by ourselves or other affiliated and associated organisations and groups.

Please get in touch with us today if you would like us to share your event here with our members and other stakeholders. We accept listings for events relating to local:

We will need the title of your event, a brief description, date, time, an online booking link, the ticket cost and a featured image for the listing (landscape and 800x600px). Unfortunately, we don’t accept commercial listings.

About us

Founded in 1875, the Cockburn Association (Edinburgh Civic Trust) is the country’s oldest independent conservation charity and we need your assistance toward our continuing work of protecting, preserving and promoting the civic amenity and built and natural heritage of Edinburgh.

We receive no core funding from state or local government and rely upon the donations of supporters and members to continue delivering events such as the beloved annual free Edinburgh and East Lothian Doors Open Days event.

Please do consider supporting our ongoing work by making a small donation here or, better yet, perhaps become a member here.

Help us to protect and enhance Edinburgh

We are an independent voice – taking no local or national government funding for our core work. We depend entirely on the support of individuals, local groups and businesses to continue our work to protect and enhance Edinburgh.
