At less than 100 years old, the Ross Bandstand may not be Edinburgh’s oldest venue — but it has to be one of the most spectacular. Its amphitheatre setting in West Princes Street Gardens boasts the Castle on its crag as a backdrop, and that’s something few other venues can offer.
Seating up to 2500 people, this is a popular outdoor concert venue for daytime and evening events. Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Jazz Festival use the theatre regularly in summertime, and at Christmas and Hogmanay it’s a key venue for the city. It has welcomed music legends like Sir Tom Jones, Mark Ronson, The Pet Shop Boys, Simple Minds and Madness, and been the centre of free events like Social in the City, Scotland’s festival for social enterprises.
To book or learn more about availability and rates contact the team and we look forward to welcoming you to the Ross soon.
In the light of the pandemic and advice from the Government, the Ross Bandstand and our partner venues, the Usher Hall, Assembly Rooms and Church Hill Theatre, are now closed to the public until further notice.
