Eastgate Cafe closed but planning for the future.

After 6 months up and running successfully, the new level 4 situation means that it has had to close again.

The initial 4 day week openiing was  a resounding success.  Old friends and customers were clearly relieved to be able to return to enjoy all of their favourite cakes and the full range of teas and coffees made to order.

New and passing visitors also made full use of the carefully distanced outdoor and indoor tables.  Shortly after the opening, manager Mikuni was able to re-instate the favourite lunchtime soup and sandwiches and in mornings and afternoons the tempting smell of toasted teacakes once again fills the space.

Throughout each lockdown the theatre has been greatly appreciative of outstanding community support from a wide range of individuals and organisations.   The Friends of the Eastgate, in particular, have worked tirelessly to raise funds for the theatre while individuals have also invented very creative ways of  celebrating the creativity of the people of Peebles and beyond. Special thanks are also due to the Corra Foundation and the National Lottery BFI FAN.

There is a steely determination to welcome customers old and new when, the theatre is allowed to re-open.   Meanwhile stay safe.
