Backstage Tour

Did you know that the Festival Theatre is situated on Edinburgh's longest continuous theatre site? Or that it was once a Bingo hall? Want to stand on stage and feel like a star?

This backstage tour is a great chance to go behind the scenes; see the workings of the theatre and walk down memory lane as we chat through the theatre's interesting history.

Refreshments are included.

One of the best tours I have ever been on
