What a wonderful setting for the Messiah. A Theatre that made you feel welcome and the performance was outstanding.
We were seated in the upper heights of the hall and could hear all the excellent singing. Do not lean over too far if you have...More
Although the exterior has been modernised, the interior still has the majesty of an Edwardian Concert Hall. Seating is comfortable and modern and access to the seating area is good.
Plenty of bars which also pre-paid interval drinks. Although there is no drinking in the...More
Very disappointed. Warm up act wasn't introduced and after four country and western songs it had me in the doldrums. No introduction for the osmonds and only two of them. When they eventually started to sing we knew none of the songs and left at...More
A great night out and very talented orchestra ruined by the most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever sat on. Won’t ever book tickets again for the Upper Circle. The most uncomfortable 2 1/2 hours I’ve ever spent in a theatre. Owners really need to address this.
Drinks prices are rising - that’s a sad fact of life, but The Usher Hall is on a different level. Please avoid drinking here - there are plenty other reasonably priced options in the area.
How the bar can justify 40 pence change from a...More
Great seat in the stalls for the Australian Pink Floyd Show. Lots of legroom.
The show was fantastic however spoilt in part by the constant inconvenient and lack of consideration of other concert goers. I wonder why the bar serves constantly throughout the performance. It...More
Experience of watching the performance on stage ruined by so many members of audience going to bar constantly during entire show to get more drinks and then needing to visit the toilets frequently.
Felt like a pub with performance incidental. Drink spilt on floor and...More
Four of us were at the Usher Hall to see the A Capella singers- Forth Valley Chorus. It is a lovely theatre with a large stalls area, circle and grand circle. There are more female toilet cubicles than I have seen in other theatres so...More
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
