Many spaces make up the buildings of the 1930's Leith Theatre complex from the gorgeous Crush Foyer to the perfectly formed Thomas Morton Hall all of which are available for hire.


THE THOMAS MORTON HALLis 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.

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 as well as bands including AC/DC and Kraftwerk. Although it shut in 1988, it is remembered fondly by local residents and is often referred to as The Town Hall. This space is now becoming available for event hire and you should speak to a member of the team about your event if you are interesting in holding it here.
