Table Top Adventurers at Sweet Holyrood - Edinburgh Fringe Festival
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
As part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival celebrations, I went to see a role-playing game show, 'Adventurers wanted', at Sweet Holyrood, located in the Macdonald Holyrood Hotel. Staff could not have been more knowledgeable or helpful regarding my additional access requirements, and access itself was simple with step-free facilities and brilliant signage to toilets and lifts.
Transport & Parking
On street parking was available, but no disabled parking was spotted near the venue.
Access in general was fantastic. Access to the venue was step-free, signage was brilliant and easy to use, seats were readily available to take a break when needed and ample lifts were available (although the doors did shut very quickly!) Another thing I loved was the consideration for access at the performance I went to see: a chair was already moved away so I could back my wheelchair in and be a true part of the performance, and the actors explained that the performance was a relaxed one offered portable hearing loops and took the audience through what to expect in terms of light and sound before they started - very impressive and much appreciated!
The accessible bathrooms were very easy to locate on each floor of the venue, and had grab rails, room for front an side transfer, and room for a carer, too.
exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the venue and access requirements.
