Latecomers – During the festival due to the tight time schedule of our shows Summerhall operates a no latecomers policy. This means you will be not be admitted to a show if you arrive after the doors have closed. It is your responsibility to ensure you arrive in plenty of time, please do not rely on show calls.

Babes in Arms – Summerhall operates a “Babes in Arms” policy. Babies and very young children aged 2 years (24 months) or under are granted entry to a performance without a ticket, provided they are then seated in the lap of their accompanying adult and do not take up a seat themselves.

Accessibility – 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 or shows are accessible. For more information please visit our ACCESSIBILITIES page.
