The Proclaimers


  • Date: Friday 10th June 2016
  • Time: 7.30pm


Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid have over the years enjoyed huge successes across the globe and in April last year released their 10th album on the Cooking Vinyl label.

They have carved a niche for themselves where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide as the emotional honesty, political fire, wit and sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans new and old.

In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Following on from the theatre success of the musical drama featuring songs by The Proclaimers, ‘Sunshine On Leith’ the movie version was a hugely popular release in 2013, spending a month in the Top Ten and generating over £4.8 million at the UK box office, making it the fifth highest grossing independent release of the year.

Expect to hear the classics Sunshine on Leith, (I'm Gonna Be) 500 Miles, Letter From America, I'm on My Way, Life With You, Let's Get Married and more.

'My favourite band of all time. They write the most spectacular songs, big hearted, uncynical passionate songs.' David Tennant




Will Varley

Rambling folk singer Will Varley, who has famously walked over 500 miles along England's south coast with a guitar on his back, saw an incredible year last year with the release of his critically acclaimed third album ‘Postcards From Ursa Minor’ on 30th October via Xtra Mile Recordings. His previous two albums also received rave reviews from Q magazine & fRoots and he has been described by Frank Turner, as "One of the best singer-songwriters in the UK."

After a sell out headline UK tour in February and March 2016, Will embarks on his biggest year to date with a tour in America throughout March, headline festival shows and a diary busier than ever before.
