The century old Lauriston Hall in Edinburgh's West Port is a large city centre community space which hosts among other things popular ceilidh dances (Scottish dances).

These take place from 9-11pm every evening during the Fringe except Sundays with participants of 50 to 200.

The church owned large and small halls recently received a £136,666 Climate Challenge Fund grant to help to introduce natural light and provide insulation to the ceiling, wall and floor, to reduce by up to 80 per cent the carbon emissions of this elegant building.

There are a number of spaces available for renting for events.
