Welcome to the website where you can find out what was happening
in Edinburgh’s Theatre Royal at the start of the nineteenth century.
The Theatre Royal was extremely important in the revival of Scottish
culture during this period, and is often associated with popular
stage adaptations of novels by Sir Walter Scott. We have digitised
a selection of over 240 playbills, which were used to advertise
performances and events, using originals in the collection of the
National Library of Scotland.
