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.

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.
