Stockbridge & Inverleith Community Council, with the help of Prestancia Events organised the 3rd Stockbridge Village Festival. The event featured a series of live bands performing inside the beer tent, a mini funfair for children, a talent contest (which we missed,) a wide variety of stalls selling everything from contact lenses to felt gifts, a LOT of food, plenty of second hand goods, and an impressive array of musical performers.
