More room Information



Overtures is a very grand & majestic space with the deep reds and columns you would expect in a theatre. It is totally self contained with its own toilets, kitchen and bar, and a private entrance. The area can be subdivided into 2 or 3 sections for smaller parties. Overtures is suitable for absolutely any and all types of events: work parties, networking events, training, wedding receptions and many more.

The Drawing Room

As well as entertaining up to 12 guests for a boardroom meeting, we can also cater for guests here, be it a finger buffet or a three-course meal. It can also be used for intimate meals (an anniversary surprise perhaps, or a private pre-theatre meal) or for smaller training sessions.

Directors Box

Hire our Directors Box for a night of theatre luxury. We will cater to your every whim and provide champagne and canapés while you enjoy the show in the luxury of your own private viewing box. Further details on request.

The Auditorium

This main area can be used for larger conferences and meetings, subject to availability.

Host your event - whatever it may be - in one of Edinburghs historic landmarks. You'll be amazed by what we can offer!
