Music, comedy and theatre

Perhaps it’s no surprise that Edinburgh’s stages are world-beating. After all, this is the city that has a month-long celebration of theatre, comedy, dance, spoken word and music from around the world every year. But when Edinburgh Festival is over, the city’s theatres, concert halls and events spaces keep on hosting and producing top-class performances.
