Kim Kjaerside joins team at Dovecot Studios

Posted: 6th September 2021

Kim joined our Commercial team as Business Development and Sales Manager in July 2021. He has over 20 years of experience in the hospitality and tourism industry across the UK. Over the last 10 years Kim has worked in the business development teams at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre and at the Apex Hotels group.

Since reopening to the public in April, Dovecot Studios have already played host to various events; our first wedding of 2021, along with a successful Wedding Open Day in June, several workshops and Markets. We also enjoyed our first Live musical performance by Little Sparta as part of the opening of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2021 on Friday 6th August. To visit or learn more about our latest Exhibition ‘Making Nuno’ Japanese Textile Innovation from Sudō Reiko check out this link.

Kim says, “I am really excited to have joined the team here at Dovecot Studios and I look forward to telling our story and showcasing both the venue and the incredible artwork created within the impressive Weaving Floor, especially to those who have yet to visit or never used our venue as an event space. I see a venue that lends itself perfectly to smaller intimate dinners and meetings, as well as large scale receptions and indeed weddings, but I would be open to discussing any events requirements and indeed the opportunities to commissioning a Scottish sustainably created tapestry or rug”

Dovecot’s unique venue offers more than just a space; it is an environment with a creative backdrop and intriguing history which provokes thought and inspires visitors.

If you wish to find out more about our unique venue in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town or indeed purchasing or commissioning tapestries or rugs, make sure you visit our website or you can call us on 0131 550 3660. To schedule a call with Kim and the team email

We look forward to welcoming you to Dovecot soon
