Scottish Storytelling Centre

A city-centre location, a unique venue, on-site catering and great customer service.

The Scottish Storytelling Centre is a welcoming hub and an award-winning venue designed by Malcolm Fraser Architects. The building incorporates the medieval architecture of John Knox House with the contemporary design of the Centre to create a multi-functional venue.

Our spaces are flexible to suit your needs, with accommodation maximum of 150 for a standing reception in our Storytelling Court, to an intimate meeting space for small groups in our George Mackay Brown Library.

The Storytelling Court

A beautiful light and bright space overlooking a picturesque garden. It is a welcoming, flexible space which is fantastic for hosting drinks receptions, ceilidhs, launches, craft fairs and events.

It can accommodate 150 people standing or 60 seated theatre or cabaret style.

The Netherbow Theatre

Our 99-seat auditorium is perfect for small-scale theatre and music productions, literary events, presentations, seminars and conferences.

The acoustics in the theatre are superb, designed to amplify the natural voice and even the smallest whisper can be heard at the back. It has fixed raked seating, high specification lighting, projection and amplification.

 “The theatre is an inspiring space to perform in.  It manages to be intimate, atmospheric and state of the art in terms of equipment and fittings.” (Xanthe Gresham-Knight - Performance Storyteller)

The George Mackay Brown Library

Located on the first floor, the Library is a great space for seminars, workshops and meetings for up to 35 people, including a breakout space which is ideal for refreshments.

The Trad Arts Hive

The Hive is located on the top floor with windows on either side of the room letting in lots of natural light. It can be used for meetings, seminars and workshops for up to 35 people. | 0131 556 9579 |
