We love a good double act here at Rally & Broad towers…Sonny & Cher, Cagney & Lacey, Buffy & Faith. Morecambe & Wise. Eddie & Patsy. Bert & Ernie. Withnail & I…

So, to celebrate all things double and duo, we’re bringing together some of Scotland (and beyond)’s finest in existing and brand new collaborations for our February shows! The Edinburgh bill is packed fuller than a glut of damson jam, from supergroups to multilingual performers. Read on, read on…!

And oh, how infinitely open to satire….. Which is exactly what The Anti-Slam, brain-child of London-based duo Paula Varjack & Dan Simpson do!
