BIGGER AND BETTER.
For Bonkers 2017 we have secured an amazing venue in Edinburgh's vibrant Leith area.
The Biscuit Factory is an arts and fashion hub housed in the former Crawford’s biscuit factory in Anderson Place, just off Bonnington Road. Built in 1947 by Crawfords Biscuits, the warehouse served as a their home for over 10 years. Having lain empty for the last eight years, it has been transform the space into a multi purpose arts hub.
Leith’s unique rebirth is an active and dynamic example of a redevelopment of a city in the attempt to realign itself within a global capital. The area's changing landscape is becoming a hub for creative business and artists.
The Biscuit Factory plans to house over 20 studios over two floors and a 7,500 square foot a venue/gallery space. We are excited to be part of their programme for 2017.
