Classic Morris Mini Parts

The Biscuit Factory, Edinburgh

Travelling the length and breadth of the country we come across some really quirky venues, I well remember the looks I received in London when I asked people on the street for directions to the “House Of Correction”, turned out to be the former underground cells for Clarkenwell prison, but sounded very much like I was looking for a brothel!

We have just supplied frozen cocktails and hot dogs to a party at the Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh, this was, as the name suggests, a former biscuit factory for the firm of Crawfords, now part of the United Biscuits Group

, it has been purchased and turned into an arts house type events venue, on the ground floor there is even a set of stills, I thought at first the arty types were perhaps producing moonshine, but turns out to be a proper pukka operation called Edinburgh Gin

Anyway, the venue was an interesting one, though rather chilly, due in part to there being no heating, and a number of missing window panes. We were operating a couple of Victorian style carts, which fit in with the event perfectly. On the 3rd floor where we were operating, the centerpiece attraction was parts of a 1960’s Morris Mini Deluxe car hanging from the ceiling, well the seats were sat on the floor, but the bonnet, boot and 2 doors were hanging from the ceiling, I could have done with the drivers seat to replace the one that was stolen from our classic mini cooper, but there weren’t really any chances to smuggle it out.
