The tents are beginning to be erected ahead of this weekends food festival in Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park.
I cycled through the park on Tuesday and noticed preparations had begun to transform the park which lies just over the road from the Botanical Gardens of Edinburgh. I stopped to draw this sketch of the busy workers and the city, and Arthurs Seat in the distance.
Its a great location for the festival and an nice walk from Edinburgh centre through Stockbridge so be sure to head down the hill this weekend to see (and sample!!) the many food and drink stalls showing their wares.
The festival runs on Friday 4th (11am-7pm), Saturday 5th (10am-8pm) and Sunday 6th August (10am-7pm).
There are cookery classes for young and old and appearances from celebrity chefs as well as local food and drink suppliers showing their produce. Its a great place to try something new and often meet the growers themselves.
For more information visit the Foodies Festival website below.
Thanks to the generous organisers I have 5 pairs of tickets to give away for the festival, simply leave your name as a comment below to go into the grand draw I am running on social media.
I will pick 5 random winners on Thursday morning and each will receive a pair of tickets. Due to lack of time the winners names will be put on the guest list to gain entrance so no physical tickets will the sent out.
This sketch was drawn on location in pen and watercolour.

Can you tell me where in Edinburgh I have sketched today?
If so click the link below to enter your answer. I will pick a random winner from all correct answers on Tuesday morning, and they will go on to the ‘Winners wall’. At the end of the month those on the wall will be entered into a draw to receive a prize.
The prize for October is a pair of tickets to the Edinburgh Craft Beer Revolution Festival which runs at the Assembly Roxy in Edinburgh from 24th to 26th November.
The winner will receive two tickets including entry to the festival for one session, festival branded glasses to keep, programmes and entry to masterclasses. Must be 18+ to enter and win.
Usually the answer will be within the Edinburgh boundaries, but on the first Monday of the month the competition is Scotland wide. Keep an eye on my facebook and twitter feed throughout the day for clues if they are needed.
I hope you join us to play along and keep looking up and noticing the details of Edinburgh, you never know where I will be sketching next time!
