Assembly Roxy

As Scotland emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Assembly Roxy has re-opened in line with Scottish government guidance.

The decommissioned church is the year-round Edinburgh home of Assembly Festival. It has three main spaces. Roxy Upstairs is a theatre space with raked seating for up to 169 audience members and Roxy Downstairs is a more intimate studio space seating up to 60 people. Roxy Central retains the building’s original features with added stage and a bar areas. It is a flexible space, seating up to 250.
