This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Symbol Cane
As the name suggests, this one time Church converted into a theatre some 50 years ago sits on the crest of a hill. Although it’s small, it produces excellent performances, many child and family orientated. There is ramp Access to the front and side of the building with lift access to the upper floors, The front vestibule serves as a refreshment area during performances and during the day is a cafe, with outside seating to the public, very popular with children and families during the Summer - it is also a fringe venue for the Festival. Disabled Access and specific seating is in the Centre of the Hall, assistance dogs have plenty room without fear of being trodden on and the staff offer to water, relieve the dogs if need be. The staff were very aware of not only our needs but others as well. The theatre is on a main bus route in and out of the City and leads into Morningside Road services 5, 11, 15, X15, 16, 23, 36 and 101 Edinburgh - Biggar - Dumfries stop on either side of the road, be careful where you park as on Morningside it’s the steep part of the drop from Churchill and it’s a challenge for a chair and someone pushing, there are limited spaces in front of the entrance and more available on the street. Plenty room inside and spacious. Car parking restrictions are from 15.45 till 18.00.

Again the public transport is excellent to and from the City, ample parking on Churchill and surrounding streets,
Very good access at front and side of the theatre, no problems on entry and exit, ramp and lifts, good signage for access and disabled toilets.

Very helpful and attentive, can’t fault.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Small but busy, especially before and after the performance, has a very good and informative website with social media links.
