Edinburgh World Heritage, the charity responsible for the conservation and promotion of the Old and New Town World Heritage Site, is to take over the running of the Tron Kirk on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile following a vote by the Council’s Finance and Resources Committee. Short term, the space will be used to showcase Edinburgh as well as the other World Heritage Sites across Scotland. Longer term, the charity plans a complete refurbishment of the building which will include facilities for the local community as well as for teachers and school children.

The Grade ‘A’ listed building, one of the most significant church structures in the city, has faced an uncertain future since it was vacated by its last congregation in 1952. It has been put to various uses over the years, including a performance space, bar, and most recently a ‘Victorian Market’. It is officially listed on the Historic Environment Scotland ‘Buildings at Risk’ register.
