Welcome We are the largest most diverse arts festival in East Lothian. Now in our sixth year, the 3 Harbours Arts Festival has over 100 venues, over 100 artists and over 50 events. Visual art, music, workshops, tours, trails, literature, film, photography and drama abound in Prestonpans, Cockenzie and Port Seton during the festival week. Art in unusual places - sculpture in the harbour, photographs on harbour railings, an origami installation in a scrapyard and much more. See the highlights page for a taste of the festival.

Communities within the 3 Harbours area are noted for their passionate community spirit, they volunteer throughout the year and are committed to this part of the coast they live at. Schools, community centres, libraries, community groups, art clubs and individuals all take an active part in the festival. Cuthill Park in Prestonpans is a beautiful tranquil space, close to the Firth of Forth and the John Muir Way. It lay neglected for many years, but now The Friends of Cuthill Park care for the site, and several events throughout the year such as the Big Lunch, Mural Fest and the Coastal Food Fair are held there. Further along the coast to the east in Cockenzie, is Cockenzie House. The beautiful house and gardens have a long and intriguing history and the Cockenzie House Heritage Group are working hard to secure its future within the community for

EMBROIDERY MARIETTA DICIACCA

The festival supports and encourages positive community activity in Prestonpans, Cockenzie and Port Seton. This is partly attained through a week-long festival of art which creates a fantastic festival atmosphere from harbour to harbour. We put on a show, we hope the sun shines and we guarantee a wealth of creative activity which visitors can enjoy at a relaxed and welcoming pace.

generations to come. A visitor to Port Seton Harbour would likely see rowers setting off in their skiff in sun, rain or snow. The Boatie Blest Community Rowing Club based at the harbour is an enthusiastic group which built two St Ayles skiffs in 2010 as part of the Scottish Coastal Rowing Association project. It has an ever increasing number of rowers and just as active a social side. This is only a taste of the activities in the area. There are many more and we would encourage you to take the time to visit the events listed in this brochure.

Festival Highlights IMAGE DAMIAN CALLAN

Cockenzie Power Station has the largest annual mixed media exhibition of over 150 artworks in East Lothian. Regular festival supporters, Haddington Art Group, Richard DeMarco, Sandy Moffat and others are included in this display of some of Scotland’s finest artists.

Damian Callan returns with a drawing created specifically for the festival. Over 7 feet by 7 feet this extra large charcoal piece features some familiar motifs from other works – children, boats, a harbour and lighthouse, and ships at sea. Jenny Pope is an artist based at the Edinburgh Ceramic Studio at Coburg House in Leith. She is an avid beachcomber and some work reflects ideas around walking and collecting manmade objects and also bones. Exploring the vulnerabilities of our bodies and the change processes related to illness/wellness, focussing on control of our ‘breathing’. Her current work combines the structure of bones and rock formations with eroded surfaces.

IMAGE JENNY POPE

Mark I’Anson (artwork on the front cover of this brochure) best describes his work himself “At the time of my first fishing related exhibition, Drifter (2006), I wrote, optimistically, that it was ‘part of an ongoing project’ while in reality having no idea what might come next. It turned out to be a book of his4 ART IN UNUSUAL PLACES l

torical photos entitled ‘Scotland’s East Coast Fishing Industry’ (2009). Next a vague notion that I’d like to draw the complete boat as opposed to what could be seen above the waterline led to an ongoing series (of which these 3 Harbour paintings are perhaps the last) ‘Like Fish out of Water’” These featured in a 2010 exhibition (Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh) and book, ‘Always Boats and Men’ in collaboration with poet Angus Martin. Now I find myself once again nervously saying “This is part of an ongoing project!’ The preview show will be held on Friday 27 May from 17.30 to 19.00. Meet the artists and take this early opportunity to acquire an original work of art. The Rosses and the Castaways will provide the entertainment with songs and music of the sea.

Photospace. Jon Eland returns with his portraits and the project resulting from the photowalk last year. Together with this display will be an exhibition of the work of a number of photographers new to the festival. The 3 Harbours Photowalk, for experienced and beginner photographers, will again capture the mixture of the colour of the festivals and the everyday life of the local area. As a special extra this photowalk will coincide with another running at the Saltaire Arts Trail in West Yorkshire. www. flickr.com/sicliff Expanding on the photowalk – roving reporters will capture the flavour of the festival. Walks, talks and workshops will be held and guests will be invited to blog with us on the 3 Harbours site. The latest information on the Photospace and Blogworkshop will be there too! Cuthill Park will be a hive of activity with the Mural Fest, The Big Lunch and The Coastal Food Fair.

2 011 This is the fifth year of the Mural Fest. Six selected muralists will be drawing and painting throughout the weekend inspired by the poem ‘Scary Haven’ written by Prestoungrange Poet Laureate, John Lindsay. The Big Lunch inspired an estimated one million people to have lunch with their neighbours across the UK last year and this year it coincides with the 3 Harbours Arts Festival. An outdoor picnic, everyone welcome. Coastal Food Fair. Come along and enjoy some of the best food on offer from Edinburgh and East Lothian. Including seafood, international food stalls and speciality foods. Arts and crafts, a car bootie and activities for the kids ensure a great family day out. The Open Houses Trail where you can view the artwork and meet the artists in the comfort of a home in Cockenzie and Port Seton. The core team of The Battle of Prestonpans Tapestry, the ‘panel beaters’, will welcome you in to the home of fellow ‘panel beater’, Kate Edmunds. Kate, Dorie Wilkie, Mary Richardson, Shona McManus, Sarah McCabe, Meg Porteous and Catriona Wilkie will be displaying their own unique pieces during the festival and you can see them working on an embroidery of Cockenzie House, from an illustration by Gareth Jones. This talented group have embroidered words and pictures for the introduction pages in this festival brochure. Marietta Di Ciacca, another ’panel beater’, embroidered the 3 Harbours Arts Festival logo. Many thanks for the beautiful work done on such a tight deadline. The Seashore Gallery situated near the ancient Boat Shore in Cockenzie and the Harbour Gallery facing the picturesque working harbour in Port Seton, are well worth a visit. The owner artists, Fiona Crombie and Alistair Hamilton have a varied selection of artwork in the galleries. The annual Boatie Blest Exhibition of hand-crafted model boats includes two models built this year, a model of ‘Boatie Rows’ by Stuart Mack and a model of ‘Boatie Blest’ by Bob McNeil. Each is a replica of the life-sized skiffs built and rowed at Port Seton this year.

Open Houses A popular element of the festival is always the temporary galleries set up in the homes of Cockenzie and Port Seton residents. This year a few of the venues have creative corners for children which are free to use whilst the parent/carer is viewing the artwork in that particular venue. The 3 Harbours Arts Festival extends its gratitude to the homeowners for allowing artists and festival visitors into their homes at this time.

Exhibition ‘Shore Gulls’ Adele Robertson Pencil

“I did these drawings of the fishermen from the cover of a small booklet of old photos of Coldingham and St Abbs. I have always been interested in old photos and postcards of people and places around Scotland. I was really taken by the three characters just working away on the creels and lines, an everyday scene at the shed, their faces tell a hundred stories and to think this is just a moment in time for these hardy men who spent their lives trying to earn a living from the cruel and relentless seas that they obeyed. Trying to imagine a day in the life of these men I wanted to capture their characters in the lines on their faces. They were known as the `Shore Gulls’ as they were always there where you’d expect to find them just like the seagulls.” Mark I’Anson Acrylic on paper DATES + TIMES Saturday 28 May – Sunday 29 May

Scary Haven At Haven’s side by Prestongrange Where the Baltics berthed by night You might hear the yell of the Hoi-Hoi Man Or the knock of a Poltersprite. You could swim from the stranded Topaz hulk Whence a voice from the Follets’ den Shrilled:- “ It’s no’ weel moored! It’s no weel moored! It’ll ne’er be moored again!” John Lindsay 2011 Notes. “The Haven” was a place that caught the imagination of local bairns. Topaz was the last sailboat of any size to use Morison’s Haven - it never escaped the silted-up harbour and was buried when the Haven was infilled in the 1950’s. In its prime the Haven was often used by Scandinavian and other Baltic traders and sailors on alcohol would no doubt produce strange foreign noises from these boats of a night!

AULD KIRK HALL High Street Exhibition Model boats of Cockenzie and Port Seton

Boatie Blest is a community group which takes part in coastal rowing for fun, for healthy exercise and to race against other clubs throughout Scotland.

This annual exhibition showcases the craftsmanship of local modelboat builders. The model boat window trail is an extension of this exhibition.

Come along to the harbour and see the Boatie Blest skiffs ‘Boatie Rows’ and ‘Boatie Blest’ on Saturday evening. There will be an open session when you can have a go at rowing a boat with an experienced crew.

Other items of interest relating to the fishing heritage of Cockenzie and Port Seton are also displayed.

Keen photographers have the opportunity to be taken out to experience the area from the sea and take some unique photographs. Then stay for the fun races and cheer on the teams as they race each other. A beach barbeque and ‘The Castaways’ singing songs of the sea will be the perfect end to the day. Saturday 4 June Activities may be restricted depending on the weather. Enquiries: 0770 888 4233

This year we feature two new models built only this year, a model of ‘Boatie Rows’ by Stuart Mack and a model of ‘Boatie Blest’ by Bob McNeil. Both models are built to scale from kits supplied by Jordan Boats. These are mini versions of the actual skiffs built at the Boatie Blest Boatyard at Port Seton Harbour in 2010 as part of the larger Scottish Coastal Rowing Association. www.scottishcoastalrowing.org.uk Stuart Mack is club captain / boat builder and Bob McNeil is a boatbuilder in the Boatie Blest community group.

Cockenzie House Heritage Group Open Day

WHATS ON The Big Lunch inspired an estimated one million people to have lunch with their neighbours across the UK last year - including over two hundred who picnicked, partied and played together in Cuthill Park. The 2011 Big Lunch coincides with the 3 Harbours Arts Festival and Mural Festwhat better chance to join in the al fresco fun? Enjoy an outdoor lunch in the company of friends, neighbours and community groups. Bring your own picnic, something to sit on, and entertainment. You’ll enjoy it. Really. Food, music and laughter tastes, sounds and feels better with others. The trouble is we’re all human and deep down we’re often shy. It’s not easy making small talk. It takes courage to stop being a stranger. But once you do, you’ll realise how many good, talented and interesting people there are in your neighbourhood who all feel the same way you do. Those who took part last year know that on the day, those inhibitions soon disappear in a game of Twister.

Cockenzie House was built in the late 1600s for George Seton, 5th Earl of Winton, Salt Master and Baillie of Tranent. It passed into the hands of the York Building Company in 1729, was purchased by John Cadell in 1777 and remained in the Cadell family for 200 years. Since then it has had many owners. The current owner opened the house as a Nursing Home until 2008. Come along and discover the intriguing history of this beautiful house and gardens. From its infamous ancestry, to its industrial heritage, and how CHHG wants to secure its future within our community for many generations. See www.cockenziehouseheritagegroup.wordpress.com Community Projects Sheila Ritchie has undertaken most of the research in to the history of the house and visited Cockenzie House with children from Cockenzie Primary School. The children have created their own interpretation of the house history and this is on display in the venue. Thomas Cadell VC brought a marble Nandi bull from India and had it situated in the shell grotto in the gardens. The whereabouts of the bull which left Cockenzie House in the early 1900s has not been discovered. So, CHHG, Cockenzie Primary School and 3 Harbours Arts Festival have worked together to bring a bull back to Cockenzie House. Decorated by pupils at the school, a fantastic lifesized bull is back in the gardens. DATES + TIMES Saturday 28 May – Monday 30 May + Saturday 4 June – Sunday 5 June 11.00 – 17.00 venue 39 T

Six more reasons to get stuck in 1 To stoke up community spirit – we call it Human Warming. 2 To make the third of us who live alone feel happier, closer and...friendlier. 3 To show how local people can change a neighbourhood for good, forever. 4 To conquer our natural shyness, to open our curtains, doors and minds and look out for one another the way we used to. 5 To share stories, skills and tools, so we all end up richer in every sense. 6 To discover common ground across age, class, faith, race and the garden fence, and to remind ourselves that charity begins at home, or at most, a couple of doors away.
