Thousands of people have voiced their dismay following news that Edinburgh’s Summerhall buildings have gone up for sale.

The news comes 13 years after the building was transformed from a vet school into a vibrant arts building and leading festival venue.

Owners announced the news on Tuesday afternoon but insisted that all programmed events, including this year’s fringe festival, will go ahead. Property consultants looking after the sale advertised that the beloved venue has the potential to become a boutique hotel or student housing - sparking outrage from members of the public.
