Summerhall supports the Fair Fringe Charter. All Summerhall employees – permanent and seasonal – are paid above minimum wage. Our festival contracts entitle our team to rest breaks, equal pay for young and older workers, minimum hour or full time contracts, paid transport for late nights, Trade Union access, consultation on rota changes and 100% of tips. We have an anti-bullying and harassment policy and an equal employment policy.
Summerhall is proud to have achieved Level 2 of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society’s Access Award.
The style and age of our building – it’s B listed and over 100 years old – means that physical access is challenging. We try and make up for that with good attitudinal access. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let us know.
Summerhall is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of the festival. We are a member of the Green Arts Initiative.
