theSpace @ Surgeons Hall (V53)

Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DW

After a hugely successful debut season in 2009 followed by expansion and growth in the subsequent years theSpace team can now boast the most established stylish and well located multi-space venues on the fringe. Located on Nicholson Street, a minutes walk the Royal Mile opposite the Festival Theatre and yards from Bristo Square the venue sits in its own buzzing courtyard, is a venue few want to miss.

Our four performance spaces played host to some 100 shows in 2016, and with an array of award nominations, feature coverage and a constant flow of 4 and 5 star reviews the venue continues to host an increasing number of sell-out shows with some 70,000 people visiting the venue during the 21 day festival.

With a reputation for offering one of the festivals most diverse cross-genre programmes the venue is complimented by a very stylish 200 seat courtyard bar and food village. It’s ultimately one of the festivals busiest venues and a must for all seasoned theatre goers.
