Here’s a great chance to tour one of Scotland’s at-risk theatres from your own home. Join a LIVE Facebook tour of Leith Theatre.
The Theatre describes the event as follows:
“2020 saw 100 years since Leith became part of the City of Edinburgh; prior to that it was a separate burgh. Since we were not able to open in person during 2020 we are celebrating them this year.
Our talks programme explores the rich heritage of Leith and its unique identity. We were not able to run the talk so instead we are bringing you this short virtual tour of this gem of a theatre.
Leith Theatre was built as a gift to the people of Leith following the amalgamation with Edinburgh in 1920. As well as sharing the theatre’s history and story of how a local action group took on the challenge of saving the building form private development, our speakers will share the journey of getting the venue back on its feet and the doors open, and look to how it’s surviving Covid closure and to the future.
Lynn Morrison leads the tour- she has been in post as Exec Director of Leith Theatre since November 2018. Anna Higham is Funding and Finance Manager at Leith Theatre and has been a key part of the senior management team at the Theatre since August 2017.
