    A very warm welcome to Unique Venues of Edinburgh – to our clients, members and potential member venues – we hope you find everything you need!

    It has been a great pleasure to have been on the Management Group since Unique Venues of Edinburgh launched back in 2005.

  • Carolyn Gemmell

    Treasurer

    National Museums Scotland

    It was with great honour & pride that I founded & chaired Unique Venues of Edinburgh from its concept in 2003, to its first meeting in May 2004 and until last year when I stepped down as Chair.

    I have remained as Treasurer though so have not given up the reins completely! It has been an exciting experience watching how UVE has grown & developed over this period, generating more income by developing additional business for member venues and the local economy.

    Having been involved with Unique Venues of Edinburgh at its inception, I am delighted to be back representing our members on the management committee. We have grown in profile and numbers over the last 10 years which is testament to the quality of the venues in Edinburgh and the demand for an unusual venue to host events. I am looking forward to working with the management team and group of members to build on our success and continue to grow the business for us all.
