The Brunton


The Brunton is a vibrant theatre and community space in Musselburgh, the gateway to beautiful East Lothian. The Brunton houses a 296 seat theatre, a 496 seat flexible performance venue and another smaller flexible venue. Our aim is to provide a range of productions to appeal to a wide audience. This includes drama, dance, music, comedy, children’s theatre, film, workshops and musicals as well as amateur and community productions all year round. Our state of the art Venue 1 allows us to offer even more entertainment as well as being available for private or corporate hire.
