A genuinely home grown festival

A great wee "that's my boy"moment this afternoon as my son won one of the prizes in the first Leith festival young writers competition It was a joy to see lots of great young talent (there were 9 winners) being encouraged by what is probably Edinburgh's least well known Festival, yet one that is wonderfully rich in variety and utterly embedded in the community from which it was born.

I would recommend a perusal round the website and if you have a moment, then fill it with one of the many events on offer. I am confident enough in the quality of the events to say that I will be surprised if you are disappointed.
