Edinburgh City community church leaders Jennifer and David Gosling are holding a mini festival of music and events at their base in the heart of the world’s largest arts festival, with the knitted exhibition taking centre stage.

Speaking to Premier, Captain Jennifer Gosling said: “A few years ago my mum’s home church the Salvation Army in Warrington knitted the nativity. Shortly after that I sent them a YouTube video of several other bible stories somebody else had knitted and they took up the challenge from there and knitted 13 stories.

“There’s over 30 people involved with scenery making, knitting, photography and media so it’s quite a team, it’s grown and includes people from Dubai and Australia.”

She added during News Hour: “We’re hoping people will be surprised, blessed, challenged by the stories.”

The event will also feature Edinburgh bible story teller, Yorick Jackson.

Gosling also said: “Yorick Jackson is coming to do a daily tour at 2 o’clock, so that will hopefully bring the stories even more alive as people are lead around the 13 different stories.”

They’ll be bringing the entire collection to the Salvation Army hub, on Edinburgh’s famous Pleasance, from Monday August 21st to Friday August 25th. The hub will be official venue No.405.

Listen to Captain Jennifer Gosling speaking with Premier’s Eno Adeogun: 

The Salvation Army will host a knitted bible exhibition at the Edinburgh Fringe from the 21st August featuring almost 1,000 knitted characters from 13 stories.
