Street food market, The Pitt in Leith are creating a Charity Lock Down Chow Down with live music and home delivered BBQ platters for people living in Edinburgh on Sunday 24 May 2020.

The live stream will be available on The Pitt Facebook page from 12 – 7pm, with performances from some of the best musical artists they usually host every week. They have also set up a dedicated Go Fund Me page for Edinburgh Food for Good Coalition and The Pitt Musicians, with the money being split equally. The lineup will include local favourites such as Baron Salmon, Paul Dennington of Wolfnote, Iona Zajac of Avocet and Leyla Josephine for top tunes.

Hal Prescott and Gloria Black of The Pitt said:”Local grassroots music artists and songwriters have lost all of their income overnight and recieve little to no support from the government and no means to get an audience so we hope to bring them the Pitt community to enjoy great food and great music. 

“We have also been supporting the Edinburgh Food for Good Coalition, who have been using the Pitt space as their distribution HQ to deliver thousands of healthy and tasty meals a week to those across Edinburgh who need them during these difficult times.

“We’re delighted to be offering the Lock Down Chow Down and also working hard on opening as soon as possible in the safest possible way so keep an eye out.”
