Cairns Lecture Theatre
This simple and elegant space seats 100 people. The gently raked rows make it perfect for a wide range of events, though floor work can be less easily viewed. The purple seats and green carpet give the space an atmospheric retro vibe. This space can only be accessed by stairs.


Notes: Once into the courtyard, get to the front of the Royal Dick Pub, take the alleyway to your left, around the back of the large tent. Through the doors; the venue is then up the stairs. Cairns Lecture Theatre – 27 steps up to the space, a further 8 steps into the space, a further 7 steps down to the stage

Approach: Reasonable adjustments have been made to the venue to give the best access for customers with disabilities. However Summerhall is B-listed and over one hundred years old and not all of our venue spaces are fully accessible. We will continue to upgrade our facilities and would welcome any suggestions and advice. Wheelchair and limited-mobility access to Summerhall is via the side entrance on Summerhall Square. The entrance is clearly marked by the original Dick Vet gates and a Front of House member is present in the courtyard at all times. As you enter, The Royal Dick is situated to your right as you come in (with a ramp at the rear of the bar) and there is a ramp directly ahead of you that leads to the Box Office, Press Office and Café.
