Thomas Morton Hall
28 – 30 Ferry Rd, Leith, Edinburgh, EH6 4AE

This is our main venue – the Thomas Morton hall itself will be used for the big workshops.  Our teacher will be on the stage and there will be plenty of room for dancers.

On an evening this room will transform for our Gala shows.  The Friday night Gala show will be with theatre style seating.  The Saturday night Gala show will be with cabaret style seating.
There will be a bar both evenings.  Feel free to bring things to nibble at your tables – but please do not leave lots of debris behind.

Old Dr Bells Baths
121 Great Junction Street, Edinburgh, EH6 5JB

A fabulously renovated building – with a lovely cafe.  We are using the main hall and building a stage for performances.  Changing facilities are limited (just the ladies toilet) so bear this in mind when planning logistics.
Festival participants are welcome to come and watch the competitions on Friday afternoon.
