I felt privileged to share the experience of the Local Hero musical with people who really wanted to be there. The joy of it was expressed in a standing rhythmic handclap at the end. Many thanks to everyone in the Lyceum on 20 April.

This old theatre still has a wonderful atmosphere with good intimacy combined with an impressively broad stage. The acoustics are very good and the staff are helpful with a very efficient entrance and exit flow.

Such a lovely theatre - the ceiling is absolutely beautiful and there is a lovely, friendly atmosphere. The production of Local Hero was magical and to see it in such a lovely setting was wonderful.

We attended here to see Local Hero, and found the theatre to very impressive. Customer service was excellent. Well worth a visit if only to view the architecture

I believe this was Am/dram but you would never know. We had seen the film so had high expectations and weren't disappointed. Whole cast was brilliant. It's long - probably a bit too long, but overall excellent.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
