SCOTS – Edinburgh Fringe 2023

The musical history lesson that no one asked for but everyone needs is coming to Ghillie Dhu this August!

A Play, A Pie and A Pint shares the true(ish) story of our nation: its past, present and future, its triumphs and failures, all told by a figure who has seen it all… Scotland’s greatest invention and storyteller, The Toilet!



From award-winning duo Noisemaker, SCOTS is an irreverent and rousing musical journey through the history of Scotland, that replays some of our nation’s most iconic (and forgotten) stories to answer the fundamental question: What makes a country?

All tickets include a pie and a pint!

Doors open 12.15pm and we recommend coming early so can grab the best seat and have time to enjoy your food and drink before the show starts. 

Please note a vegan sausage roll and other drink options will be available. If you have any dietary requirements then please email with as much notice as possible and we will do our best to cater for you.
