Festival Theatre

Door open days


The Festival Theatre, situated on the longest running continuous theatre site in Edinburgh, opened in June 1994 boasting, at that time, the largest stage in the UK, a 1,915 seat auditorium, spacious bars and function suites, an iconic glass façade, and state of the art stage equipment and back stage facilities. Visitors walk through the decades as they step through the modern foyer into the 1928 auditorium. The Theatre has a national and international reputation as one of the UK’s premiere presenting venues.
