Saturday 1st April 2017

£16 FAMILY TICKET (2 ADULTS, 2 KIDS/1 ADULT, 3 KIDS) AVAILABLE BY CALLING THE BOX OFFICE ON 0131 558 7272
Watch This Space Productions Presents: The Song of Fergus and Kate
“I’m a monster” Fergus admitted, “you’d better go and let me be” but the girl said “I’ve never met a monster, come out and let me see.”
Do monsters really exist? If they do what do they look like? Are they covered from head to toe in slimy scales or matted fur? Do they have teeth like sharks or claws of steel? Or do they look like you and me?
The Song of Fergus and Kate is a brand new interactive show that uses storytelling, music and animation to encourage children to celebrate their differences.
ALL CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED.

Benefit in Aid of Pilton Community Health Project

Tuesday 18th April 2017

Pilton Community Health Project has been working in the Pilton area since 1984 - that makes it the oldest community health project in Scotland. We use a social model of health - looking at how health is affected by everyday life and is as much about the quality of your emotional and social situation as about your experience of disease or disability. We are rooted in the community and have always worked using a community development approach to tackle ill health in the area. It is a process that includes:
promoting learning, knowledge, skills, confidence and the ability to act collectively taking positive action to address inequalities in power, access and participation strengthening organisation, networking and leadership with and between communities working for change through increased local democracy, participation and involvement in public affairs. Please join us for a fantastic night of comedy in support of their important work.
With host Susan Morrison and four acts TBC!
To ensure the maximum donation goes directly to the charity, we are not taking advance payments for this show. Tickets are £8 and can be reserved by calling our Box Office on 0131 558 7272.

Gavin Webster’s Northern Hemisphere Tour

Wednesday 26th April 2017

After a successful World Tour last year in FIVE different worldwide venues from South Durham to North Tyneside, Gavin Webster the self styled, joke engineering, Geordie King of the service stations brings his Northern Hemisphere tour to Edinburgh Stand on April 26th.
Expect a packed hour of biting, sneering satire with surreal twists and witty jokes so frequent, it’s akin to a fireman on a steam train shovelling coal in to the furnace to keep the laugh locomotive moving at record pace.
With dark observations, sardonic ukulele comedy numbers and majestic set pieces with soulless poetry to boot, you’ll realise you’ve watched one of the great alternative comedians and an antidote to the suit wearing arena comics of the day.
Support act as well and T shirts on sale.
‘A comedy street-fighter……he’ll use anything at hand to land a blow’ Chortle
‘His command of the room is doubtless….I was left with a really positive outlook on what stand up can be’ Comedy.co.uk
‘Like a cross between Bill Hicks and Geoff from Byker Grove’ Ross Noble
‘Some of his rants are wonderfully surreal, others disguise a fiery intelligence beneath the aggressive delivery…..few will be as palpably funny as this’ Sunday Herald
