Following advice from the Scottish Government Capital Theatres can announce that we will be cancelling or postponing all performances and events at the Festival Theatre, the King’s Theatre and The Studio throughout March and April as an initial measure.
If you have booked tickets for a Backstage Tour during the above dates you will automatically receive a full refund over the coming weeks. Our box office staff will contact customers directly if there are any issues, please bear with us as we work through the refund process at this challenging time.
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.
