Happy New Year from Largo House, East Fife, Scotland

Welcome to What’s on in our area this January.  Traditionally the main attractions ‘Go dark’ in January which gives us a great opportunity to explore some new activities.  We’re constantly looking to introduce you to new venues and different experiences.  Even if an event isn’t to your immediate taste why not give it a try.  There are so many little gems in this location.  Have fun!

I’ve given a web link in most cases.  Please check before you go.  As with all exploring, some of our ‘What’s on’ suggestions will be brilliant, some will give you completely new experiences, and others may be a disappointment. I’m putting this list together based on what I think looks interesting.

Craig Hill – Bottoms Up!

4th Jan 2020 Byre Theatre –  http://bit.ly/2t608WU

If you’re a gin, he’s a tonic! Join Craig as he pops his cork to toast his 20th solo show – this is one fun mixer that will keep you fizzy all the way to the bottom! Fresh from making his solo debut on New York’s off-Broadway, Craig’s in the pink this year, channelling his best Bertie Bassett, turning 50 shades of gay, and proving it takes Allsorts to make the world go round in his bubbly, fun new show. Cheers!

Renowned all over the world for his cheeky, irreverent and high-octane performances, Craig’s tours are firmly established as one of the best nights out around. His razor sharp wit and unsurpassed audience rapport provide the perfect blend for a brilliant night of pure, unadulterated comedy – we are delighted to welcome him back to The Byre Theatre!

‘Flat-out hilarious… I’ve not heard a room laugh so long and hard… There isn’t anyone better at working a crowd… the audience was in absolute paroxysms of laughter… Genuinely funny’ ★★★★★ – Mirror
