I have been here with my girlfriend to see Mark Thomas and the show has been excellent. The venue is quite small and there aren't numbered seats, so I suggest you queue as soon as possible to get a nice seat.
I would definitely come...More
Visited for the PPP season and I could not fault the theatre was brilliant performances and cannot wait for later in the year for the next series. Was also encouraged to see Gut as I had been visiting this made me go which was also...More
It was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster with the poets not reading the audience very well. I felt they brought the mood down. Jennifer Ewan band then had to bring the audience back into a happy place!
My boyfriend and I were having a weekend getaway to the capital and decided to see a show whilst there. Not only was the woman at the boxoffice absolutely lovely, staff in the bar and the ticket staff friendly, but at £11 each the tickets...More
There’s no Secret Gift review opportunity so I’ll use here: what a poor, uninspiring, amateur performance! This felt like some potentially entertaining Street artists elevated to a theatre. Big mistake as was apparent by the bemused and lacklustre response from the sell out crowd.
Went to see this at 1 pm mid-week. What a wonderful concept - you do actually see a play, choose a pie to eat, and choose from a variety of drinks - including a pint. Lovely atmosphere. Very friendly staff. And the 45 minute play...More
I love this series and look forward to it in Spring and Autumn very year, a real local gem. The plays are great well written superbly acted and available at lunch time and dinner.
Pick your play from the brochure, you receive a hot pie...More
Dedicated to new plays and innovative scriptwriters, this is a great play to catch the most cutting edge in theatre. It has two spaces, one much smaller for intimate performances. Look out for their popular Play, Pie, Pint series for excellent value
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
