Join us for an in-depth look behind the scenes and delve into the history of the Festival Theatre or the King’s Theatre. We offer backstage tours to the public on the first Saturday of each month, at both the Festival and the King’s Theatres. They’re a great chance to see the inner workings of our two iconic theatres. Each tour lasts two hours, with refreshments included. For dates or to book, please visit “What’s on” and select the “Tours” filter, or simply call the box office on 0131 529 6000.
