C venues announces two new venues for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017

For 2017 C venues cement our New Town presence with two new venues in the heart of the New Town.

C royale, at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on the the corner of George Street and Hanover Street, is our newest hub venue, housing multiple performance spaces forom 20 to 120 seats over three floors of this iconic city centre Georgian Building. As well as multiple black box studios, both flexible format and with fixed seating, the venue includes a sumptuous bar, space for 'pay what you think' shows, exhibition spaces and grand classical rooms suitable for site specific performance.

C primo, on Hill Street just minutes from C royale, is one of the longest-running Fringe venues, and we are proud to bring this historic venue to our stable. The venue houses a 90-seat end-on theatre, 60-seat black box end-on studio, a site-specific historic room micro studio, and the cellars are also available for small-cast site-specific performance.
