Roxy Art House Closes Doors Due To Cash Problems
However, only days later the venue has been forced to close its doors due to the financial difficulties of its parent organisation, the charity Edinburgh University Settlement.
The BBC reports that the charity has ceased operations after running up debts of £300,000.
The Roxy Art House web site was displaying blank white pages at time of writing and there is no message on the EUS web site about the financial difficulties.
The EUS, which was founded in 1905, runs local arts initiatives and several schemes for locally disadvantaged people.
As well as opearating the 8100 square foot former church building in Roxburgh Place that was home to the Roxy Art House, the EUS had a Community Learning Centre at Regent's Road, and Stepping Stones venue at the Old Fire Station at East Norton Place.
It also owned Bristo Place Church, home to the Forest Cafe, Wilkie House in Cowgate and 5 Holyrood Road in Edinburgh.
