NEWS - New venue for Old Town
Edinburgh’s picturesque old town is set to open its doors to a new venue next month. New space, GRV, enjoyed a dry run this festival season when it played host – under the guise of The Green Room – to 42 Fringe shows. Setting its stall in the Cowgate, the venue is currently under wraps until its official opening on Friday 16 November.
The multi-purpose GRV will showcase exhibitions presented by Analogue, club nights, comedy and live music. The main venue space will have a 250-strong capacity with digital mixing desk, full audio and new media and visuals equipment. The upstairs area will boast a bar space and gallery space. Edinburgh film company, Blimey Productions, will also set up home there with two editing suites, sound booth and a film studio, alongside Ark PR. This latest venture unfolds as the city’s nearby Grassmarket area enjoys its own £5m facelift.
