VENUE

A busy Italian restaurant on South Bridge. Easily accessible to the Pleasance, Bristo Square and the Mile
PERFORMANCE ROOM

A lovely room. Small and perfectly formed could hold around 50+ if rammed but didn't feel empty with only 8

STAFF

Friendly but obviously more concerned with their jobs

ADVERTISING

A few posters up in the venue - Although some non Free Fringe flyers appeared from time to time, these were soon re-dispersed

AUDIENCE NUMBERS

Had variable numbers ranging from one night of only 8 to full houses. Averaged around 35 which was amazing. Had a couple of nights with some very drunk people. On both occasions I had to ask them to leave as they were disturbing the shows. The remaining audiences were grateful and the shows continued.

BUCKET

Had some good ones. As per usual the more you appeal the better the bucket. Entertain and they shall pay.

TECH

Standard mic and p.a. provided by The Free Fringe

ADMIN AND COMMUNICATION

It's a busy restaurant and the Ice cream is served to passers by through the door as well. The only time I had any interaction with staff was when trying to keep the entrance clear.

QUEUING

With one small entrance and a very busy restaurant it does make entry a little tricky. There's also no cover so people do tend to try and go downstairs before the other show has finished. Essential to be there at least 15 mins before the previous show kicks out to ensure they're not disturbed.

STORAGE
Storage was minmal so a space at the back of the room was created. A lot of the shows that were in the upstairs space required a lot of props and could only be stored downstairs.
