Arthouse planned for New St. James Quarter

Located directly across the road from our York Place Apartments the New St. James Quarter renovations looks set to add another dimension to Edinburgh’s culture.

There are plans for an Arthouse within the complex (formerly St. James Centre). The venue will not only act as a cinema but will also be used for live theatre and music concerts. Designers insist that this will not challenge Vue cinema within the Omni centre but act as a hub for cultural events such as the Fringe and the Edinburgh Film Festival.

Brighten up those Dark Winter Nights in St. Andrew’s Square

Running from 5th February – 28th March 2016, The KEYFRAMES located within St. Andrew Square will be sure to brighten up those dark winter nights. The Lighting show is on every evening from Sunset till approximately Midnight. It is comprised of numerous “stick men” which illuminate in tune with music. They can be seen dancing and even climbing trees – great for families. For more info on this event please see this article from Edinburgh Council.

If you are coming to Edinburgh over this period we strongly recommend you visit St. Andrews at night to experience this event at least once.
