Edinburgh's New Town, part of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage area, is 250 years old this year!

In celebration of this milestone and as a signature event in Scotland's Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017, an atmospheric lumière experience has been developed, highlighting the city's beautiful Georgian architecture and bringing its original residents back to life, right in the heart of the New Town. 

A Guide to green travel, to and from Assembly Rooms Edinburgh

It’s no secret that we’re big on being green here at Assembly Rooms and this is something we like to encourage our staff, clients and guests to incorporate into their travel arrangements. This could be anything from taking public transport, using Park & Ride, walking or cycling (we particularly encourage the latter because you really get the chance to absorb the Edinburgh atmosphere - it's an amazing city).

Drink Beer, Give Water. That is the core mission of Alan Mahon and Josh Littlejohn’s social enterprise craft beer - Brewgooder. The team behind Edinburgh’s popular SocialBite, are doing their part to bring clean water to those who need it most. For every Brewgooder Lager sold all of the profits go towards projects in developing countries.

For the fourth year running, Informatics Ventures, chose Assembly Rooms Edinburgh for its flagship Engage Invest Exploit (EIE) event, Scotland’s largest investor showcase. With its capacity to host a large exhibition and a conference simultaneously in separate rooms, the venue was ideal for the 600+ early stage start-ups, investors & guests who took part in the event.

Last month we hosted something a bit different., The Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival (EDEF) is the first major festival of its kind dedicated to event cinema and virtual reality, exploring artistic and creative areas which use digital technology in their delivery and development. With expert panels, keynotes, technology demonstrations and cinema showcases we hope you discovered a taste for technology!
