Background on Dunbar Daytripper
Dunbar Daytripper is the idea and creation of Claire and Alan Gray, a local couple who have combined their passion for food and music. Claire operates the Cafe in Lauderdale park, in Dunbar. She also has her own small, artisan food company called nocowknowhow that produces allergy free foods. Alan is a musician in his spare time and has been involved in performing and writing music for many years. Also, over the past year or so, Claire and Alan have been hosting small, intimate music sessions in the Cafe Lauderdale and have a loyal following at their Juke Joint sessions.
Claire and Alan’s longer term aim is to create a music venue for local artists and bands to perform and this is how Dunbar Daytripper came about. Lauderdale park is a perfect outdoor venue, a lovely walled garden set in the heart of the town.
Being the first year of Dunbar Daytripper, any profits made are being reinvested into the park and enhanced leisure facilities, such as outdoor performance space and games.
