Helping our neighbours

The Eastgate Theatre in Peebles is also struggling to keep going after lockdown. They’ve been very active in posting music and other arts events on You tube. In particular, they gathered together friends who make music or write, to present four half hour YouTube “Garden Ceilidh events”. They were recorded, properly distanced, in a garden in Peebles at the beginning of August. A couple of members of the PCAA committee contribute to three of them! It’s a worthwhile cause, and donations are welcome.
