Edinburgh - any shows to recommend for review?

Hi everyone,I'm heading to Edinburgh this year for just a week to see lots of shows and do lots and lots of writing. I've somehow managed to blag my way in as a sort of runner for Lyn Gardner at the Guardian, meaning that I will be spending every day seeing as much as I possibly can and then reporting back to Lyn on what she should go and see for review. There are obviously way too many shows for Lyn to see, let alone review, so she has entrusted me (god help her) with the responsibility of…See More

Hi Ben, would you like to cover launch of Indycube co-working space for the BUZZ, at The Media Centre, Culverhouse Cross, www.indycube.biz

Its aimed at anyone who’d benefit from coworking, we’ve got great coffee, and a roof terrace.

Speak soon.

We’re launching on May 4th and will be holding our launch event Friday, the 7th. Start 6.30pm, we’re having locally produced beer from the Artisan Brewery in Cardiff http://www.artisanbeer.co.uk/ and wines from grapes grown in the Vale of Glamorgan http://www.glyndwrvineyard.co.uk/

I picked up on this you tube video today, and although the location is different from ours, some of the thoughts struck a chord with me… http://concentratemedia.com/videos/workantileexchange0100.aspx
