The Wash House (aka Portobello Community Centre) is run by a volunteer committee, with part time support from the city of Edinburgh council. As a registered charity, it plays a vital part in providing the community with access to public space. The Wash House activities encourage and supports health, wellbeing and life long learning for the benefit of the local community. With two available rooms, and a large hall complete with lighting rig, blackouts, PA, and stage, the centre is ideal for both professional and amateur arts activities and hosts plays, pantos, ceilidhs, film nights and music events. The Wash House caters for all ages and has a youth lounge for youth clubs which meet across the year.
