The Brunton

A meeting place for theatregoers travelling from Edinburgh and East Lothian, this friendly mid-sized Musselburgh venue provides a busy programme of visiting drama, dance, music, comedy, children’s theatre, film, workshops and musicals, as well as amateur and community productions. It also produces its own popular pantomime with a strong local flavour. All seats in the modern 300-capacity theatre have a clear, open view of the stage, making it comfortable for everyone and particularly well suited to children. The multi-million pound refurbishment of the main hall upstairs, which seats 500, hosts a variety of concerts including classical music, comedy and dance performances, as well as regular cinema screenings showing new releases, National Theatre Live and Royal Opera House live screenings. The hall, known as venue 1, is also available to hire. The organisation has close relationships with a number of performing arts organisations, not least the resident children's theatre company Catherine Wheels, which works internationally and with local schools. The spacious curved bar serves drinks before the show and during the interval, while the bistro serves snacks and lunches as well as more substantial pre-theatre suppers. Artwork around the theatre by Glasgow-based glass artist Deborah Campbell was created to replicate themes from the Musselburgh Fisherman’s Walk with fish, creels, seaweed and waves incorporated into the design. There is plentiful parking in the surrounding area.
