Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.
You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids. Donate to Mama Biashara now
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Acting for Others provides financial and emotional support to all theatre workers in times of need through the 14 member charities. During the COVID-19 crisis Acting for Others have raised over £600,000 to support theatre workers affected by the pandemic. Donate to Acting For Others now
There is much more to history than
just learning dates and facts. Actually, that’s just learning dates and
facts; history is about putting those dates and facts into some kind of story,
albeit sprinkled with a good dose of “perhaps”, “maybe”, and “possibly” when
trying to work out what may have happened thousands of years ago...
An evening dedicated to songs and music inspired by Stevenson and his writings, this one-off performance of the critically acclaimed CD ‘From a Garden of Songs’ was a rare treat in a festival, bursting with a myriad of musical offerings...
Established in 1973, the Edinburgh Folk Club was represented at the Fringe for the first time this year with a showcase at the Acoustic Music Centre at St Bride’s that displayed some top-quality Scottish talent...
