Capital Theatres and the Act

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (“the Act”) enables any person to obtain information from Scottish public authorities.

This legal right of access includes all types of ‘recorded’ information held by Scottish public authorities. From 1st January 2005 any person making a request for information must be provided with it, subject to certain conditions. Capital Theatres became a designated public authority and subject to the Act in April 2014.

The Act also places an obligation on all Scottish public authorities to adopt and maintain a 'Publication Scheme'.

Capital Theatres Publication Scheme

Capital Theatres has adopted the Scottish Information Commissioner’s Single Model Publication Scheme.

View the Single Model Publication Scheme.

In adopting the Single Model Publication Scheme, Capital Theatres has produced a Guide to Information which:

  • Allows you to see what is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class of information
  • States what charges may be applied
  • Explains how to find the information easily
  • Provides contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information
  • Explains how to request information which has not been published

You can view our summary of recent updates to our Guide to Information in our Publication Review. Alternatively you can contact us on 0131 662 1112 to ask for a copy of the document to be posted to you.

Making a Request

You can view current active requests for information and the completed requests for information.

If you are unable to find the information you require, Capital Theatres will assist you in making a Freedom of Information request. If the information you request has already been made available to the public in other ways, we will normally refer you back to that source.
