The Assembly Rooms officially opened in January 1787 and ever since, the building has been at the heart of special occasions and celebrations in the capital, hosting royalty, celebrities and nobility. The venue has continued to evolve with the times, with major extensions and renovations, all the while maintaining its impressive Georgian grandeur and first-class hospitality.
Year of Young People: we bring to life two Georgian era characters who will provide a master class based around the idea of “finishing off” young ladies and gentlemen for their introduction to society.
Activities: Guided tours, no prior booking required: noon, 1pm, 3pm & 4pm. Alternatively, feel free to wander and explore the venue on your own. Classes in “How to Speak the Georgian Edinburgh Way” as well as the language of the fans.
