Pint of Theatre – returns Thursday 13th June with James Rowland at The Black Bull Balsham

“Pint of Theatre” – a private Edinburgh Festival soirée in the intimate setting of our restaurant
Thursday 13th June
Black Bull Balsham
“Team Viking” with James Rowland from Tangram Theatre brought to us by Inn Crowd
£25 – pre-booked Two Course Dinner & Theatre Performance
£5 – performance only, booked in advance (full a la carte menu available if preferred)
£10 on the door if space

After the successful Pint of Theatre programme last year, we have booked some more Inn Crowd shows for 2019. Although sadly this one might be the last as the Arts Funding that makes it just about manageable runs out.

They are great fun evenings with a dinner followed by a short (60 minutes) performance by a talented professional performer. Here we have James Rowland from Tangram Theatre :

Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. Tom’s last wish was to be given a full viking burial by his two best mates, Sarah and James.
This is the remarkable, hilarious and heart-lifting story of how James and Sarah actually gave their best mate the send-off he wanted… and all the trouble they got into when they did.

Originally developed at the Vaults Festival where it won the Origins Award, Team Viking was one of the runaway hits of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival, combining storytelling, music and comedy-theatre to rave reviews.

“As accomplished storytelling as you could hope to see. To call it a comedy about friendship, mourning and terminal illness – which on one level it is – would in no way convey what a joyous thing it is.’
