You go to a club to watch some drag. The music is great. The performances are on point. The booze is flowing freely and the room is filled with laughter. Someone says something stupid. Possibly homophobic. Possibly sexist. Do you challenge them?

Part drag, part cabaret and part theatre, Jock Tamson’s Bairns is an immersive show where the audience is transported to an afterhours gay bar and invited to speak their mind. No topic is taboo, but a respect for your fellow humans is compulsory.

Part of LGBT+ History Month

Suitable for ages 12+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jock Tamson’s Bairns are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
