Variety

The Festival and King’s are the only theatres in Edinburgh to programme the full range of performing arts – dance, opera, gigs, drama, family shows, comedy and musicals, giving you a huge variety of shows and audiences to build your partnership around.
 

Year-round

We have a packed programme of theatre throughout the year so you’ll be able to choose the opportunities that best suit your timescales, be that a targeted campaign at a specific time, or a or year-round association. 
 

Two venues, double the opportunities

As we run both the Festival and the King’s Theatres you’ll have promotional and entertaining opportunities across both. The prestigious Festival Theatre is Scotland’s premier dance and opera house, Edinburgh’s home of Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet and a leading venue for the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh International Film Festival.  The much-loved King’s Theatre is the Edinburgh venue for touring productions from the West-End and the home of the legendary King’s panto – at seven weeks, the longest run in our theatre calendar and our biggest seller – almost a fifth of the people of Edinburgh come to see the panto each year.

“To celebrate our fifth birthday, we wanted somewhere different.  Somewhere with the WOW factor.  The Festival Theatre with its space, fantastic views and excellent facilities provided just that.  We had a brilliant night.” Whitespace
 
“With its magnificent backdrop of Arthur's Seat, the Scottish Power Gallery at the Festival Theatre provided the perfect setting for our event, and the staff could not have been more helpful in ensuring our needs were met and that we received good value for money.  We had a lovely event, and a number of our guests commented specifically on how much they had enjoyed the venue itself.” CSV Scotland
