Edinburgh Playhouse

Security Scotland’s Events Division are delighted to be awarded the security contract for the Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh. 

Firmly established in the cultural landscape of Edinburgh the Playhouse boasts an audience capacity of just over 3,000 making it the UK’s largest working non-sporting theatre. Operated by the Ambassador Theatre Group, the venue plays host to some of the biggest names in live music, comedy and musical theatre.

This year after over 500 days of closure due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the reopening of the theatre was a much-anticipated event, and our team were delighted to play a part in the historic moment when the curtain was lifted, and Playhouse officially reopened for business! In recent years, The Playhouse has played host to a wide variety of artists and shows and is used as a venue for both the Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe each August.

Our SIA Licensed team will be on site at every show providing a visible security presence, ensuring theatre goers enjoy their return to shows safely.

Security Scotland Operations Director, Chris Callaghan commented “to add such a prestigious, world-renowned venue such as the Edinburgh Playhouse to our event client portfolio is fantastic and our team are very much looking forward to working with such an experienced & knowledgeable venue operations team. After the challenging year the industry has just experienced, never before has the phrase ‘the show must go on’ been more accurate.
