Hire our Spaces
The Leith Theatre Complex is an architectural gem from the 1930s that contains four main areas for hire: “TMH” (Thomas Morton Hall), the Crush Foyer, the Crush Hall Upstairs and the Balcony Suite. The Main Theatre is not available for hire but can be accessed under supervised conditions.
• TMH is a light and flexible space with a stage, green room and adjoining kitchen, where many successful events have been held: cultural events, seminars, parties, wedding celebrations, rehearsals, classes and exhibitions. TMH is currently open for community and corporate hire.
• The Crush Foyer is the spectacular entrance to the theatre complex. The ornate sculptural features, grand staircase and original ticket booths reflect the complex’s unique architecture. It is currently available for hire independently or along with the Thomas Morton Hall to which it is adjacent. It is perfect for drinks receptions.
• There are two spaces upstairs above the Crush Foyer: the Crush Foyer Upstairs and the Balcony Suite. These spaces are separated with a partition wall. These are beautiful rooms, perfect for smaller meetings but also popular with dance and physical movement classes. During working weekday hours the Suite is used by the City of Edinburgh Council to hold civic weddings.
• The Main Auditorium was reinstated for use by the Edinburgh International Festival in 1961 following two decades of disuse after WWII. Between 1961 and 1988 the theatre hosted major international directors such as Yukio Ninawagea alongside some of the most famous classical musicians of the time including Yehudi Menuhin. Although it shut in 1988, it is remembered fondly by local residents and is often referred to as The Town Hall. The Main Theatre is currently out of use, but plans for its refurbishment are now in progress. The Main Theatre is not available for hire but can be accessed under supervised conditions.
