What Can You Do in Edinburgh
Multiple Venues and Performance Spaces
Our multiple central venues include our main venue multiplex C on Chambers Street, with four theatres, C nova at India Buildings on Victoria Street, occupying seven storeys in an A-listed abandoned Victorian office block, C too at St Columba’s by the Castle, and C south at the St Peter’s, Lutton Place. Previous C venues have included former Odeon Cinema on Clerk Street, the SoCo Old Town Gap Site, and the Edinburgh College of Art.
Theatre Management, FOH Supervisors and FOH team
We provide each venue with theatre and house managers to oversee the smooth running of each show and the venue as a whole and to be responsible for staff, visiting companies and members of the public. Our larger venues also have additional front of house team members to assist the public and visiting companies.
Technical Managers, Technicians and Stage Managers
Our theatres are equipped to the highest technical specifications. Our technical staff are there to maintain these standards in the venues at all times, to assist companies with their get-ins and to be on hand should their help be required. Our technicians will normally operate some of the visiting productions. We also need specialist technicians with proven skills in carpentry, lighting, sound and IT/computers.
Box Office Managers and Team
Our integrated box offices use the Fringe ticketing system to sell tickets for shows at all our venues. Our box offices function as a stage door reception, with box office staff welcoming company members and passing on messages. We see our box office staff as key members of our marketing department, at the front line of getting an audience for our shows in what is a highly competitive environment.
Press and Marketing Team
Our press and marketing team work to generate media coverage for our programme and to boost ticket sales for our shows. We are committed to vigorously promoting our venues and the works we host, and we are looking for people who will work tirelessly on behalf of our visiting productions both before and during the Festival.
Client Services and Administration
We are unique amongst Edinburgh venues in having a client services department who assist companies with all aspects of their stay in Edinburgh, and offer advice and solutions to any of the problems that can beset a Festival company, from their leaflets not arriving to lack of electricity in their accommodation. The administrative team keep the whole C machine running efficiently and also offer support to all the other departments.
