Over the last few weeks, a team from Art Organisation WAVEparticle have been out and about on High Street and Saltmarket chatting with retailers and residents.

The event planned for Saturday 22 July will celebrate the ancient heritage of High Street and Saltmarket, and the living heritage of retailers and residents, some of whom have been on the street for 40+ years. At the same time, we want to look to possible futures for the area.

From 11:00 am on 22 July we will fly one hundred and one flags and standards, reflecting both the rich history and the current life of the oldest line in the city, in parallel to the Merchant City Festival Carnival procession. So thanks to many of you who have already committed to being involved!

We are holding three drop-in sessions where you can come along, meet the team, ask any questions you might have about the event and get involved! These will take place in McChuills Bar, 40 High Street on the following dates:

Thursday 6th July 5.30-7.30
Thursday 13th July 5.30-7.30
Thursday 20th July 5.30-7.30

Everyone is very welcome.
