EN4’s Christmas Show Selections

It’s that time of year when it becomes too cold to think… about anything other than something hot to drink.

With all the coldness enveloping Scotland this winter, it’s time to look forward to the almost overwhelming number of Christmas shows that are descending upon us this festive season.

Many Fringe shows cannot resist the allure of Edinburgh, even after the festival – one such show is getting ready to return to the capital this winter for a Christmas Cabaret.

Hosted at the Stand Comedy club in York Place, the cabaret is set to delight and excite adults and teens alike.

The famous Bugle Boys

If you’re a fan of American Drag queens, then going to see the Bugle Boys at the Assembly Roxy will obviously be the first show you see this Christmas. 

Another fan favourite from this year’s Fringe festival, the trio have certainly brought back their talent. The show, along with some laughs and antics, will feature the queens singing – not lip-syncing – some of the most iconic Christmas tunes. Dressed in faux military wear  and ready to blow the crowd away, Ewan James Armstrong, Martin MacLennan and Tom Harlow light up the stage alongside their long-suffering pianist Chris Gorman.  

Tickets  – £5 to £15

A festive dystopian adventure with the miracle of Christmas future

If you’re looking for something that stretches your mind, then why not head down to the Traverse theatre this season for a wonderful magic show full of surprises. The perfect match-up of Scottish magician-scientist hybrid Kevin Quantum, and Swedish high-tech wizard Charlie Caper sees the duo impress audiences with their combination of magic and science. 

In the “Miracle of Christmas Future” the audience gets to see how magic, robots and humans come together to create a vision of the future of Christmas. The show combines classic sleight-of-hand with state-of-the-art technology to create an immersive and mesmerising experience that is not soon forgotten. Incredible illusions are sure to challenge your knowledge of the impossible. 

This event is clearly made for magic enthusiasts, sci-fi fans and people who are after something more interesting than your average Christmas miracle
