Up and running at last

THE 2013 Just Festival got underway today, with the aroma of anticipation giving way to a buzz of excitement.

Around 150 metres worth of tickets, many thousands' worth, have been sold through the Hub and the Fringe already.

The keen volunteers in the on-site cash box office at St John's Church - volunteers from Bologna in Italy and Melbourne in Australia, respectively - told Just Festival News this afternoon that they have already been busy.

That word will probably be swapped for 'hectic' in the very near future. But customers are guaranteed a warm welcome and good service from the Just team.

The official festival opening event, 'Just starting' is tomorrow evening (Saturday 3rd August) at St John's.

It will give a good flavour of the mix of culture, performance and conversation on offer - in the case of members of Sikh Sanjog women's project in Leith, who will be running Punjabi cookery workshops during the festival.
