And so it begins...

Cat and I travelled through to Edinburgh last night to attend the Assembly Festival Gala launch at Assembly on the Mound. The venue was packed for a brilliant evening of varied acts from the Assembly venues.

Our show, The Sound of My Voice got a good mention amongst other theatre productions in the opening speech. There was no theatre in the launch programme, as this doesn't really lend itself to the format of the evening. Although slightly disappointing, I can totally see why, as it'd be hard to find a scene that worked.


The revellers outside Assembly on the Mound last night.

My favourite performances of the night were from Tao, The Soweto Gospel Choir and event host Jason Byrne, who was utterly hilarious. I've even been inspired to buy a ticket for his show.

Thanks to Jayne and all the team at Assembly for a brilliant night!

Alison and Cat headed back through this morning to meet our street team, Fin and Maria, who will be braving the busy/tram obstructed streets of the capital to let folk know about the show. Please say hi if you see them.



Our first preview kicks off at 3.20pm today. A crew from the theatre are heading through tomorrow to provide support. Good to luck to everyone, can't wait to see it again!
