We open up forgotten urban spaces for the public to explore and discover incredible music, art, theatre, film, dance, spoken word and more.
Through our festivals we reveal hidden parts of the city and showcase new and emerging artists, musicians, theatre and film makers.
Hidden Door is a volunteer-run charity, with our work funded through ticket sales, sponsorship and fundraising. All money goes straight back into the festival and paying our creative contributors.
>> Hidden Door 2022 <<
This year, we’re bringing the old Royal High School on Calton Hill to life for a ten day festival of live music, visual art, dance, theatre and spoken word.
The buildings, mostly silent since the school closed in the 1960s, will be used to celebrate Scotland’s exciting new and emerging creative talent, before work begins to transform it into Scotland’s new National Centre for Music.
The festival will completely transform the entire complex from 9 – 18 June 2022.
