About Paradise Green
Paradise Green is a non-profit organisation (a company limited by guarantee) run by unpaid volunteers (including the directors of the company). The company was founded in 1997 specifically to run venues at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Our aim is to provide the friendliest and best run venues on the Fringe. We strive to achieve the right balance of a relaxed, informal atmosphere and a dedicated, professional approach when dealing with theatre companies and members of the public.
We are committed to programming a diverse and exciting mix of theatre, reflecting the best that the Fringe can offer. Our venues have established a reputation for upholding the original spirit of the Fringe, providing a showcase for all kinds of production, ranging from established classics to new writing, and of all sizes from monologues to big cast musicals.
In 2014 we are running two venues, Paradise in Augustine's and Paradise in the Vault, both located in the heart of the Old Town, just minutes from the Royal Mile.
Our staff and management team come from a range of backgrounds. They are united by a shared love of theatre and the performing arts, and offer a wealth of experience and expertise in every aspect of small-scale professional and non-professional theatre. Many of the team have full- or part-time jobs in the creative industries.
We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly and hard-working volunteers to join our team for part, or all, of the period of the Fringe. It's a great way to experience the festival, to meet like-minded people and to become part of the Fringe Festival.
Unlike some venues we do not offer a wage. Instead, we offer you a package that includes:
- free accommodation in one of our flats (Fringe-time accommodation in Edinburgh is quite expensive!)
- basic breakfast items in the flats (cereals, toast, juice, tea and coffee)
- free vegetarian meals from our kitchen
- free tickets to all our shows (subject to availability).
