Free entry is music to the ears

Popular Edinburgh nightspot Whistlebinkies is scrapping its weekend admission charge for the first time in 20 years as it bids to ‘spread the summer love’.

Usually you would normally have to pay £4 for entry from midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

But from 31 May  that will no longer be the case as Whistlebinkies throws open its doors to the general public, with free entry now available seven days a week.

“We’re hoping this will give even more people access to live music,” said assistant manager Dave Magowan.

“We pride ourselves on the variety of musical acts we have on stage at Whistlebinkies and by dropping the entry charge at the weekends, we’re hoping more people can be exposed to what the city has to offer.

“By offering free entry, we are hoping to give something back to the Edinburgh public who have been so supportive of us down the years.

“Whistlebinkies wants to spread the summer love this year and what better way to do that than by giving everyone free entry into the city’s top live music venue?”

Rising US Country star Canaan Cox will appear there on 22 June 2019 for the first time and Dave added: “He is one of the hottest new acts around and we’re really excited to have him here.

“He’s on a UK-wide tour and with all his other gigs ticketed, our event is his only free one so people are in for a real treat.”
