Gala Dinners & Award Ceremonies

With our history of innovation and such a stunning backdrop created by the city of Edinburgh, it is an inspiring place to host a gala dinner or award ceremony.

The city is known for its superb architecture, with impressive buildings, ancient grandeur and historic locations mixed with modern wow factor everywhere you look.

Every event organiser needs flexibility, which our gorgeous venues bring. Whether you are looking for a beautiful, historic setting in the heart of Edinburgh or a location on the outskirts that is easy to reach and accessible, we have a venue to suit your event.

Edinburgh has hosted some of the world’s highest profile events and punches well above its weight against other cities.


We are known the world over for our background in science, technology, medicine and business, so hosting an event here will inspire your delegates while wowing them with the sheer drama of the city. With spaces that take from a few hundred to 1800 delegates, you will find the perfect location for a gala dinner or awards ceremony.

What could be more inspiring than a major event beneath sky high climbing walls, perched above the city on Castle Rock, or beneath the soaring ceilings of ‘Scotland’s Sistine chapel’?
