About the event

Edinburgh is the only city in the world with a netwrok of police boxes still in place. These boxes were comisioned in 1933 and were designed by the citys chief architect Ebenezer MacRae.

In recent years these ex police boxes have been auctioned of to individuals many of whome have a strong interest in community engagment and in 2015 the first Edinburgh Ex Police Box Festival was held. This atracted thousands of visitors and huge media coverage.

Now in 2021 we want to again utilise these unique monuments to community. Police boxes accross the city will be used to display art work externally. There will be a range of art on display from various artists, including but not limited to: Police Box costume, interactive computer game (scan the QR codes during your tour of the boxes), poetry, visual art and loads more!
