As the city gears up for the Edinburgh Festivals, the Edinburgh49 team, together with Alechemy Brewing, invite you to join them at Assembly Roxy to celebrate the end of normality. See below for details of how to get on the guest list.
The Edinburgh49 Prize for distinctive & memorable theatre 2014
On the night of Thursday 10 July the recipients of the 49th most prestigious award in the South East of Scotland will be announced.
The winners will be those 6 productions who have done most to showcase that Edinburgh is the home, incubator and top destination for the planet’s most talented producers.
Assembly Roxy: Rooted in the Fringe, blossoming year round
Every active Fringe-goer has come to know Assembly Roxy pretty well over the years. Some of the most enthralling August productions have been shown in its intimate and highly charged spaces. As a newly-established year-round venue the prospects for great entertainment are proving to be just as bright.
Despite the central location (between the South Bridge and the Pleasance) the inside of Roxy is world unto itself, retaining that sense of occasion from when worshipers were still arriving in their Sunday best. Getting the all areas tour from manager Caroline Fraser is a theatre nerd’s delight – be sure not to miss getting yours during the night of 10 July.
Roxy Central: Classic Church-style space. Available for fairs, conferences, readings, weddings, meetings, performances and dance classes. Approximate capacity 250 (seated) and 400 (standing).
Roxy Upstairs: Black box theatre. Ideal for rehearsals, auditions and performances. Approximate capacity 200 (seated).
Roxy Downstairs: Perfect break out space and for its own smaller events. Approximate capacity 60.
The Snug Bar: Suitable for casual functions, small scale performances and get-togethers. Fitted out with chesterfield sofas, low ceilings & located adjacent to the bar. Approximate capacity 60.
