How about a 17th Century picnic in Starbank Park?

Edinburgh University is holding an afternoon of talks at Starbank Park about Alice Thornton, a woman who wrote about her life in the 17th Century, a conversation with Kate Foster, author of Times Bestseller ‘The Maiden’ and forthcoming ‘The King’s Witches’, crafts, creative writing, and guided walks with a local botanist to uncover the poisons and herbal remedies that would have been known to 17th-century heroines in fiction and non-fiction.
