Assembly Roxy hosts four performance spaces during the festival, with Upstairs, Central, Downstairs and the Snug Bar all chock full of shows. 

During the festival we close Roxburgh Place so you can relax and enjoy a drink before the show and purchase or collect tickets for any of our shows from the box office there.
