Built in 1787, the Georgian A-listed landmark has long been at the very heart of the capital’s and New Town’s cultural and social history. Following a major redevelopment completed in 2012, it was transformed into a range of flexible event spaces fit for contemporary use. With its architectural significance and splendour preserved and enhanced, the Assembly Rooms will retain its prominent role within the historic New Town for the next 230 years. This year during Doors Open Day the Assembly Rooms will capture the verve and flair of the 1950s.
