Summerhall used to be the home of the Royal Dick Vet college but has now been turned into a multi purpose arts venue.

This place has so much potential but at the moment is such a let down - grubby in places and cold! It feels more like being back at school (but maybe that’s the look they are going for given the history) but doesn’t work as a contemporary arts venue. Also felt that the building was freezing cold (especially some of the larger rooms!).

In conclusion it’s definitely got potential - maybe just needs to decide it’s identity

Having graduated from the R(D)SVS in 1989, this is my first visit back. I was shocked by Summerhall’s appearance along with the disrespect and disregard for the site’s illustrious history.
One would have imagined that arts organisations would present and use the building to its best, unfortunately it no longer has any character and the courtyard resembles a slum.
So upsetting.

First time here to see Kristin Hersh & have no complaints about venue or sound quality. It's a quirky place, set in the former Edinburgh University veterinary school. Looking forward to our next visit when the right band presents itself.

We booked for a big-name event that got cancelled. The company insists to keep the booking fees! You better read the Terms and Conditions carefully before doing anything at this venue, since they will simply keep some of your money even if they decide to cancel.

This is a scam.

At a music gig. Sound and lighting were excellent and would happily go to this venue again. The bar is nice and is a good place to visit if in the neighbourhood
