Located on the Royal Mile, the Centre incorporates historic John Knox House, the 99-seat Netherbow Theatre and the George Mackay Brown Library, and is the headquarters of the Scottish Storytelling Network. It is also home to the Storytelling Café, and is heavily involved in festival events throughout the year.
