Football – Conservatives – Assembly Rooms tours – Stockbridge Market – Queen’s Hall today
Hearts are playing in The Scottish Communities League Cup Final at Hampden today, and if they win there will be an open top bus parade from the roundabout at Broomhouse Road all the way back to Tynecastle. Streets around Hearts ground are already equipped with waiting barriers just in case.
The club say that there is no official start time due to the fact that the team have to travel back from Glasgow but we are sure that social media will alert you!
The Scottish Government confirmed last summer that it would continue to offer financial support to the Scottish Communities League Cup, with funding of £1.7 million.
£500,000 of the money comes from the Cashback for Communities programme. The Scottish Government explains this scheme on its website:-“CashBack supports and extended range of activities for children and young people in the areas of sports, culture and youth development. The activities provided are free and open to all children, focusing on areas of high crime.”
The SFL have a TV channel here which will whet your appetite for this afternoon’s match.
Edinburgh Conservatives have told us about their new website where you can find details of all Edinburgh Conservative councillors and get all their latest news. Although it has not been updated for a week or two….
Next Saturday the Assembly Rooms are running another set of their popular tours. Booking details here.
Stockbridge Market is on today. Have a look here on their website for a list of the producers who will be selling their wares.
Today at 3:00pm the Dunedin Consort perform the Matthew Passion at The Queen’s Hall.
“The award winning Dunedin Consort presents its annual performance of one of Bach’s most gripping works at the time of year when its powerful message is most often contemplated.
Its eight main soloists (singing in German) perform also in the choruses, bringing a level of intimacy and drama that bigger forces cannot match. Bach intersperses the passion narrative with profoundly expressive choruses, arias and chorales producing a work of intense emotional impact that has justly become one of the pillars of Western classical music.”
