is a charitable body whose sole purpose is to promote and encourage the study, practice and knowledge of the Arts in Penicuik and surrounding district. We do this by mounting changing exhibitons in the cafe gallery and by organising regular concerts catering for all tastes. We aim to give a platform to local talent. We also bring the best talents to Penicuik to entertain and inspire local people at affordable prices. We encourage participation in the arts and the premises are used by several craft and art groups.
