UKRAINIAN COMMUNITY CENTRE
The Ukrainian Community Centre (aka UCC) at 14 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh EH7 5AB is literally just around the corner from Edinburgh's biggest theatre, The Playhouse and is handy for ...

  • the top of Leith Walk and London Road (many city service buses and buses serving East Lothian stop at the Leith Walk end of London Road)
  • Waverley railway station at the east end of Princes Street
  • St Andrew Square bus station just off the middle of York Place
  • the tram's current terminus at the east end of York Place / top of Leith Walk

UCC is less than one mile (about 1.35 km) from the Fringe Office in the High Street (click here for map). There are some good restaurants and pubs nearby in Leith Walk, along with numerous local and specialist shops. [See Google maps Ukrainian Community Centre, Edinburgh]

ROYAL TERRACE
 

Royal Terrace (pictured above - looking west to east) runs along the north side of Calton Hill and was designed by the renowned Scottish architect, William Playfair.  Playfair's plan is dated 1819. The terrace was finally completed to Playfair's design in 1860 and is the longest continuous street of Georgian town houses in Edinburgh. Royal Terrace became known as the Amber Mile or Whisky Row because of the number of whisky merchants living there who were reputed to be able to watch their wares being shipped into and abroad from the port of Leith (which must have been before the trees looking down on to London Road matured and obstructed the view!).

DISABLED ACCESS TO UCC
UCC has a portable ramp to get wheelchairs past three steps from the pavement and into the building's ground floor. Thereafter access to the Main Room on the ground floor where the shows take place is flat. There is a disabled toilet on the ground floor towards the rear of the building. Two wheelchair spaces are available in AMC's gig-space, the Main Room.

The building does not have a lift. The basement bar is not accessible by wheelchairs neither from the street nor via the internal stairs from the ground floor.


STONEYPORT ASSOCIATES, an entertainments agency based in Edinburgh, has brought together the shows which will perform at the ACOUSTIC MUSIC CENTRE @ UCC in August during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Previously, from 2005 to 2016 (inc), the Acoustic Music Centre was at St Bride's Centre on the west side of the city centre and was the 'go to' Edinburgh Festival Fringe venue for audiences looking for good acoustic, roots, folk, Celtic music (amongst other things). Something like 70%-75% of that kind of music being presented annually on the Edinburgh Fringe happened in St Bride's. In early 2017 that had to change and AMC found a new home @ UCC.

AMC actually began in 1982 elsewhere in Edinburgh, in Chamber's Street Students Union (no longer with us - now offices!!) where it ran very successfully until 1995.
