The Hub, Edinburgh's Festival Centre
The Hub is the home of the Edinburgh International Festival, and the best place in town to soak up the Festival atmosphere and find information on all the festivals. It is also the home of the ongoing Bank of Scotland Connecting to Music project, and weekly rehearsals of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.
The Hub is a magnificent Gothic building situated at the top of the Royal Mile, a stone's throw from Edinburgh Castle. It is operated by Edinburgh Festival Centre Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Edinburgh International Festival Society, and is a popular visitor attraction in its own right, welcoming over 500,000 visitors a year. The tip of its spire is the highest point in central Edinburgh, visible for miles around, while the interior showcases a fine collection of contemporary arts and craftwork.
The Hub is open all year round, and houses its own restaurant, Cafe Hub; a spectacular Main Hall, which is a popular venue for concerts, ceilidhs, banquets and parties; and two smaller venues, the Dunard Library and the Glass Room, used for meetings and more intimate parties. All of these areas are available for commercial hire. You will also find Hub Tickets here, the central box office for the Edinburgh International Festival and a range of other events throughout the year.
The Hub is the home of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, and the venue for a wide range of Festival-related community and education events.
