WE ARE OPEN!

With the easing of physical distancing restrictions by the Scottish Government we are pleased to re-open our venues on a phased basis over the coming months.  From Monday 19 July St Leonard’s Hall on the Pollock Estate reopens whilst the McEwan Hall will re-open late September for business events.

We anticipate reopening our other venues through the autumn and are taking enquiries for future meetings/conferences in these venues. Please get in touch with any questions you may have, or to find out about any offers we may have on for future bookings: +44 (0) 131 651 2189 or at edinburgh.first@ed.ac.uk.
