Home to a host of voluntary and creative organisations, the Drill Hall, just off Leith Walk, is a hive of activity all year round. The hall offers studio and production spaces for local and touring productions and artists, hosts regular courses including dance, drama, art, and even aerial acrobatics. There is a fair-trade, organic café in the hall, which offers training placements for local youngsters.
