The former Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh is now a creative centre and the capital’s biggest arts venue. The sprawling complex has theatre and gallery spaces, libraries and museums, educational and research programmes, studios and workshops, and it hosts exhibitions and events.
