I recently had a phonecall last week asking me to change seats for The Wedding Singer. Having got my tickets two months previous, I was a bit annoyed, as the new seats were a couple of rows behind my previous seats. I was a bit...More

Came here for the Wedding Singer. Was looking forward to Ray Quinn but ended up being his understudy with no announcement, warning nor explanation. The theatre itself is fine- smaller than other theatres but means most seats have good viewing. Bar is too small to...More

An amazing old venue where you find yourself admiring the internal architecture a little too much at times. You eyes keep finding exciting new details everywhere you look. The ceiling painting is a work of art. The audio was excellent. Seating was slightly uncomfortable for...More

This is a theatre as it was in the days of yore: gilded statues, boxes and stalls, with seats to reserve and falling in different price categories depending on their location within the theatre. The plays which I have seen thus far have been entertaining...More

Hard to think of anything adverse with this theatre. There is a great 'homely' feeling about the place and I seem to have been going there for years. Of course I suppose it depends on the programme but the theatre itself is just fine

This is a jewel of a Theatre. The whole place is Art Deco within an inch of its life. The main auditorium was a pleasure just to sit in. We sat in row C of the front stalls for the all male Mikado. The leg...More

The show was excellent, a bit of an emotional story. The set and costumes ? were impressive. A really enjoyable experience

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighborhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
