Scotts In The City - Burns Night Special...

Our friends north of the border are always a lot of fun, but those Scottish lads and lassies are a talented bunch too! After a hugely successful one-night-only show at the Arts Theatre on St Andrews Day in November, Scots In The City - aka #StageFaves Kieran Brown and Shona White - returns for a Burns Night special at The Other Palace...

Celebrate Burns Night in style with a host of leading West End performers as they present Scots In the City - Burns Night Special (It’s not all bagpipes and Brigadoon..!) on Thursday 25 January 2018 at 8.00pm. Following the success of their launch at the Arts Theatre London in November, a pair of seasoned Scottish West End performers are bringing their smash hit sell-out show to The Other Palace celebrating the very best of Scotland and musical theatre, with a nod to the nations most famous literary export, Robert Burns!

Shona White (Wicked, Mamma Mia, Chess) and Kieran Brown (The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Lés Miserables) will be joined by musical director James Doughty and a host of talented Scottish musicians and some of the best Scots voices in the West End, showcasing the rich Celtic musical history of Scotland in this unique celebration of all things Caledonia and “Rabbie” himself!

“We are delighted to have another opportunity to share an evening of song celebrating our mutual love of Scotland with a London audience at The Other Palace, particularly on Burns Night. We are both fiercely proud of our deep Scottish roots, and also proud to be Londoners, so this is a unique opportunity to combine both as well as share some of the iconic poems and songs penned by one of Scotland’s most prolific sons. We are planning a few surprises along the way, and alongside Niall, our musicians and special guests, we hope the audience will leave with smiles on their faces and an understanding of the unique rich musical landscape of our bonnie bonnie homeland!”

Scots In the City is proud to once again be supporting UKBorderline and Scotscare, an umbrella charity which aims to assist vulnerable and homeless young Scots in the capital. So bring your bagpipes, flash your very best tartan, prepare to be swept away by sweeping Scottish melodies, some of the Bard’s bonniest ballads – and Andrew Lloyd Webber as you’ve never heard him before!
