A flexible and beautiful event space, in the heart of the city

Though we are first and foremost a worshipping church, Greyfriars is also available as a space for hire. As an iconic building in the very centre of Edinburgh, and with stunning acoustics, Greyfriars is highly sought after by some of the biggest orchestras and choirs in Scotland and the UK – we’ve been hired by The Sixteen, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, The Hebrides Ensemble. National Youth Orchestra of Scotland, Edinburgh Royal Choral Union and the Edinburgh International Festival.

In addition, we also host free Thursday lunchtimes concerts called Greyfriars at 12 that feature student and professional performers.

We also take bookings for wedding receptions, ceilidhs, private parties, conferences, recordings and exhibitions – see below for more details.

All private and public events must be booked via Steve Lister, our Operations Manager.
