The award-winning Tolbooth is Stirling's venue for music, performance and classes.

Re-opened in 2002, after a sensational restoration and redesign by award winning architect Richard Murphy, the Tolbooth has quickly established a reputation as one of the best live music venues in the country.

The Tolbooth has always been a feature of Stirling's cultural life, it has been a court and jail (complete with death cells) and hosted a parliament in the reign of James VI.

Nowadays the Tolbooth is the base for Stirling Council's Arts and Event Team and the home to some of the best musicians and performers working in Scotland.

The extended Grade A-listed building has retained many original features such as the dome ceiling in the main auditorium as well as incorporating state of the art technology throughout its eight floors.

The main auditorium can accommodate up to 166 people seated theatre style but at the touch of a button the space can be transformed to suit a an event for up to 225 people standing.

Throughout this light and airy building there are small to medium sized meeting rooms, the largest of which can accomodate 100 people, break-out rooms, circulation space, a cafe/bar and restaurant.

A permanent technical team is on hand to provide support to the more than traditional methods of presentation.
