North Edinburgh Arts

North Edinburgh Arts is a community hub in Muirhouse and Licketyspit’s Edinburgh home! They run lots of activities from workshops, shows, exhibitions to community theatre and film clubs, most with a family focus!

North Edinburgh Arts was a home to Licketyspit from 2011 up to very recently (June 2019). It is where we have produced a variety of touring shows and residency projects, including our shows Molly Whuppie, Wee Witches, Quangle Wangle, Hare & Tortoise, Heelie-Go-Leerie, Green Whale, and Magic Spaghetti. We also regularly worked with the community and local primary schools and nurseries through projects such as Porridge & Play, BookPlay, Picnic & Play and our Storyplay Schools programme designed to support the development of children’s literacy, language and confidence which raises children’s attainment.

Despite our moving our main office to Glasgow Licketyspit has a strong committed to our relationship with North Edinburgh Arts and their communities and to continuing to deliver our work in Muirhouse and the North Edinburgh Arts for our Children & Families Network members.
