More than art, film, and books
Summerhall's winter visual arts programme launched last weekend and it was a real feast for the eyes. Deirdre Nicholls' portrait sculptures and Jerry's Map, a simple doodle that took on a life of its own were incredible. The best, however is yet to come, as the Summerhall event continues until the end of January.

Summerhall is open to the public all year round and hosts events in all the City's major festivals. But it's far more than Edinburgh's newest and biggest arts venue; visitors will find theatre and gallery spaces, libraries and small museums, educational and research programmes, studios and workshops.

In it's third year, 2013's 'festival', offers more than a more comprehensive understanding of the word 'arts'. Think theatre, music, literature, film, as well as events specifically for children and families. Unlike a lot of galleries which limit their creative juices to daytime hours, Summerhall is open late. So if you've missed any daytime events (due to work commitments, etc), you've an opportunity to enjoy the late night offerings.

As I've said the Winter Visual Arts is full of events which will run until January, some of which really caught my eye include the following:

When is a Book Not a Book?(Exhibition), held in The Project Room 11am - 6pm.

Summerhall, events, free, art, exhibitions,
When is a book not a book?

Funch 11am - 6pm. I think this looks especially apt for children.

Ali Affleck and Vieux Carre £8.00 8pm - midnight. Jazz at it's very best.

Summerhall, events, free, art, exhibitions,
Swinging times

See the website for more events and exhibitions because there really is something for everyone. I try to avoid clichés, but Summerhall really has it all going on
