The Voodoo Bar - The Twat Files.

This was our first performance at Edinburgh so we were grateful to get a venue at all this year. On the whole we really enjoyed ourselves and came out of it full of confidence and ambition for next year. However, we did encounter some problems with the venue…

The main problem was the location. We found it difficult to lure people away from the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile, plus we struggled to get people in from the Haymarket area itself, as the bar was rarely open on time!

The other problem was the venue manager’s commitment. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a lovely guy, but his attitude was so relaxed at times that it made everyone else around him quite stressed! He rarely answered his phone, never cleaned the downstairs basement, and consistently failed to open the bar more than 15 minutes before our show started!

But that said, it was a great experience and we learnt a hell of a lot from it. We look forward to having another crack at the free fringe next year! :)
