2017 venue announced!

We are delighted to announce that the venue we have chosen for Hidden Door 2017 is the old Leith Theatre – a stunning derelict art deco theatre that has been standing empty and gradually falling into disrepair for 28 years.

Full Festival Passes now on sale

After selling out our early bird release of opening night tickets, we’re now delighted to offer, for the first time ever, full 10-day Festival Passes at a great reduced rate. Find out more >

Thanks to everyone who put in a proposal

Our open call for proposals for visual art, poetry and theatre had well over 200 applications. Thanks to everyone who submitted ideas.

The team are now pulling together the invited programme of visual art, poetry, theatre, cinema and, of course, music. 2017 is shaping up to be the best Hidden Door yet!

Join our Bars Team

For 2017, a new dedicated Bars Team will be creating some of the most spectacular and exciting bars yet – and we’re looking for volunteers to get involved!

We’re looking for passionate and enthusiastic people who have experience of either bar design and build, bar operations and logistics or raising sponsorship. Find out more.
