DISSECTION ROOM

Your enthusiastic and very capable staff could not have been more helpful. Everyone from the duty managers to the ushers to the caretakers were kind to us and took a real interest in making sure everything ran smoothly
Kirsty Halliday, Edinburgh Acting School

DISSECTION ROOM
The name might be a little gruesome but Summerhalls Dissection Room makes for a truly spectacular, completely original venue. Huge windows make up one side of the room and a small balcony (accessed by a wrought-iron spiral staircase) adds another level of interest and functionality. Lined with attractive wooden display cabinets, flexibility is key here, particularly with the bonus of being able to use three adjoining annex rooms as spill out space. Perfect for parties, dinners, weddings, concerts, conferencing and meetings, The Dissection Room is one of Edinburghs most distinctive and unusual settings.
