About

A Scottish landmark, the King’s Theatre is a prominent cultural and historical venue for entertainment in the capital city. It was built in 1905 as a rival theatre to the Royal Lyceum, gaining a following from its first production of Cinderella the next year. Today, audiences continue to enjoy classic pantomime, alongside West End productions, festivals, opera, comedy and much more.

The theatre has become a household stop for touring productions and companies over the years. The likes of Sir Laurence Olivier, Lesley Neilsen and Sir Ian McKellan have entertained Edinburgh via the King’s Theatre, while Sean Connery even worked backstage at one of its productions!

Despite the star-studded performances from actors around the UK, the theatre holds its local community at its core. It regularly stages regional festivals and showcases the work of Edinburgh’s dramatic and music societies, disseminating local talent on its grand stage.

The King’s Theatre is undeniably a national treasure, and while it required restoration and refurbishment over the years, it retains the elegance and extravagance of the Victorian era. You can’t help but be impressed and moved by the theatre’s decor and ambience, feeling respect towards the ‘Old Lady of Leven Street’.
