What is The Forest?

bgicon_smallerThe Forest is a volunteer-run, collectively owned and operated arts charity based in the heart of Edinburgh. Self-funded by its vegetarian café, The Forest houses a gig space and art gallery, numerous workshops and the monthly Golden Hour reading and performance night. It provides an alternative space, free and open to all, to hold events, display art, make books and records, or just hang out, eat healthy food and meet like-minded individuals.

Our books are just a few examples of what The Forest funds. It also distributes grants to meritorious artistic and community projects. For more information, or to get involved, please visit The Forest in person or at
