Leith Theatre is a magnificent art deco building which in its heyday hosted big name acts such as AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Slade … and the Wombles!

The building still retains some original art deco features, such as the ornate ceiling and staircase as well as the original pay boxes, but the main theatre itself has been closed to the public for 25 years.

Their ambition is to reopen the theatre to the public for Edinburgh Festival’s 60th anniversary next year.
