Citadel Arts Group is a Leith-based charity which mainly focuses on expressing the creativity of older people.

We collect their memories and our older writers find inspiration in these stories to create plays which we perform for audiences of all ages in schools, community centres and sheltered housing.

Citadel Arts also supports a new playwrights group in our base in Leith Dockers Club and a youth drama club in Leith Community Centre.

Much of our work is inter-generational and celebrates Leith heritage and experience.

The Playwrights workshop meets on Thursdays from 2-4pm and the youth drama club meets on Thursdays from 5.30-8pm (2 groups). Other activities take place at various times depending on the current projects.
