Brave

Set in the Scottish Highlands, this Disney Pixar classic follows feisty, flame-haired Princess Merida. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

10.30AM – 1.00PM

From Scotland With Love

A journey into our collective past, this film explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration, work and play. Ordinary people, some long since dead, their names and identities largely forgotten, appear shimmering from the depth of the vaults to take a starring role. Brilliantly edited together, these silent individuals become composite characters, who emerge to tell us their stories, given voice by King Creosote’s poetic music and lyrics.

1.00PM – 3PM

Sing-a-long Sunshine On Leith

Bringing to life the music of The Proclaimers, join us for a sing-a-long of this feel-good adaptation of the sensational stage musical. Jubilant and heartfelt, it is the tale of one tight-knit family, and the three couples bound to it, as they experience the joys and heartache that punctuate all relationships.

3PM – 5PM
