After his meteoric rise through the ranks, Scottish Comedy Award winner and viral sensation Gary Meikle is back with his second tour show, Surreal! A word that perfectly describes Gary's last few years. He started 2019 performing in comedy clubs, and ended it selling out big theatres in the UK as well as tours in America, Canada and Europe!
Not one for mincing his words, Gary has been described as 'playfully dark'. His cheeky chappie nature and ability to get away with talking about anything will have you laughing at things you probably shouldn't be! As always, Gary will draw material from his own real-life experiences, including his unique family dynamic and his rapid rise to online fame. Quickly putting his audiences at ease, a night of stand up with Gary feels like a night in the pub chatting with friends!
Having performed to tens of thousands of people over the past year, Gary has found a new confidence and level of openness on stage, meaning he doesn't hold back on giving his opinions, no matter how warped! The new show will cover topics such as evolution, social media, how to deal with burglars, single mums, bee sex, small man syndrome and much more. Gary is a fast paced, punchy storyteller that finds the funny in anything!”

Have your smart phones and tablets ready for a new, born digital dance performance experience that takes place in Neverland. Neverland is a metaphor for today's society and how it plays out online. Neverland: Our Story in Pixels, is loosely inspired by Social Media, Young People's stories of growing up online, digital rights, safeguarding, identity, citizenship and oddly the story of Peter Pan. This hybrid performance experience looks at our sense of reality, looking at reality both online and offline. Is what you see, what you get or are we all trying to live up to a distorted sense of reality? Neverland is a digital world shaped by the voices and imagination of Lauren Tucker and young people she has been engaging with since 2017. By bringing audiences together, we can co- create new memories and collectively share our experience online. Who are you and what do you want to say to the world? Lauren wants to ask young people, parents, teachers and anyone with an interest in developing young people for their futures- how can social media and digital technology be used as a force for good, and enable us to move towards the rainbow we have been chasing and dreaming of, a better society both online and offline. Are we prepared to have conversations with young people to enable positive social media use and to explore its creative potential? It's a serious subject matter, but this experience is not a dark one, it is fun, entertaining and designed with, by and for young people. It is a child friendly show. Recommended audience 9+
As an artist, Lauren aims to actively listen to young people, to advocate for equality, to raise awareness and educate on issues of global concern and social injustice by any media neccessary.

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.
In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms - is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
