Renovated Assembly Rooms Providing New hub for Edinburgh’s Fringe

A cold, wet evening in May (aye, May) is not the best atmosphere for being at the wrong venue for a launch.  My excuse? There was a hint somewhere in an email about seeing renovations and anyway, what do I know about building schedules? Answer: hee haw. We are so used in Edinburgh to the disruption of barriers closed streets and roads, that whether or not scaffolding has gone down is barely noted any more.  Luckily, I was in the Guides so used my initiative and soon came across some likely folk on the way to the launch in St Andrew Square.  (Note to self: always read the small print.)
