With a deep commitment to virtuosity and originality, it presents some of the finest performers and ensembles from the worlds of dance, opera, music and theatre for three weeks in August.

General Manager, Fi Morley said: “As home to the International Festival, we work alongside the International Festival team to present some of the world’s best performances. In August things really pick up, as The Hub becomes the focal point for the city’s arts and culture activities.

“We are always busy at The Hub, with the Cafe Hub open all year round and events and weddings happening regularly in our superb event spaces.”

Over the course of the year, the International Festival team travels the world to bring together an unrivalled programme of the most exciting and creative artists working today.

Together, they present unique collaborations, world premieres, and new interpretations on classic works, critically acclaimed productions and more – that thrill, move, excite and entertain audiences from around the world.

The Hub at the top of the historic Royal Mile, is one of Edinburgh’s most dramatic venues.  The magnificent Grade A Listed building is renowned for its integration of contemporary design and facilities within classical Victorian architecture.

It has a richly decorated Main Hall, elegant Dunard Library and vibrant Cafe Hub which are ideal for gala dinners, weddings, ceilidhs, exhibitions and special events that demand a creative edge.
