Assembly Rooms

The Assembly Rooms is a large arts venue on George Street in Edinburgh, used for hosting events, performances, exhibitions and gatherings. Dating from 1787 and extended and refurbished several times over the years, this is a grand building with a music hall, ballroom and nine drawing rooms. The decoration is opulent, with crystal chandeliers and gold leaf details throughout. This is one of the major venues for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, a huge arts festival that takes place in the city every August.
