The room makes a magnificent, light-filled statement from four magnificent chandeliers and a row of grand Georgian windows overlooking Edinburgh’s George Street. Staging is available either via the central stage, which is set into the natural curve of the building, or via modular staging that can be used in a number of creative ways.
