In April 2022 the old Debenham's department store at Ocean Terminal, Leith, Edinburgh, which had been lying empty for 18 months, was taken over by THELMA; the Living Memory Association. It has metamorphosed into The Wee Hub; a vibrant heritage and community space. Wee Hub manager Miles Tubb takes us on a tour of this ever-changing pop up venue, which includes crochet, dance and circus classes, piano sculptures, a shark made from keyboards, and a plethora of reworked mannequins with attitude.
