Sixty years ago, on 3rd February 1959, Rock ’n’ Roll lost its brightest star – Buddy Holly. To commemorate Buddy’s anniversary and to celebrate the joy he has brought millions of people worldwide Buddy Holly and The Cricketers are presenting a very special show in venues all over the UK. On Friday 8 February the band will aim to raise the roof of the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles.
This season the Eastgate has extended its reach with a range of professional productions staged during the day and events at venues across Tweeddale as well as the packed weekend of the Peebles Outdoor Film Festival and the programme of blockbuster films every second Sunday.
Invite to see artist impressions of the planned auditorium development and discuss options with the Project Design Group.
As we prepare to welcome in the New Year, the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles looks back on an eventful and busy 2018 that also saw significant progress in the development plan that will transform the auditorium and make the theatre better able to serve the community for decades to come.
On Friday 19 October the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles presents the World Premiere of STUFF a play by an award-winning creative team that explores the hoarding of memories, emotions and things.
STUFF is the new play by Sylvia Dow, directed by Muriel Romanes and designed by renowned artist John Byrne. The idea came from a simple poster with the word mess on it.
It led Sylvia to think about the difference between most people who have a lot of stuff in storage and some people with a hoarding disorder where everything has equal value and so everything must be kept. Muriel was intrigued by the idea and the concept took physical shape when John Byrne came up with a series of boxes each holding its own art installation.
The Eastgate Theatre welcomes a comedy first on 4 October when Glaswegian stand up Ray Bradshaw performs Deaf Comedy Fam – the world’s first comedy show performed simultaneously in British Sign Language and English.
The Board of the Eastgate Theatre is looking to appoint a new Finance Director who combines strategic insight with practical interest, to provide the crucial financial oversight that will enable the theatre to continue to function, flourish and grow.
The Eastgate Theatre, the busiest arts venue in the South of Scotland, is seeking new people to join the Board of Directors and influence the theatre’s future.
At the beginning of July the Eastgate Theatre announced that it was in a race to raise £70,000 by 30 August so that it could meet the European LEADER match funding stipulation and access an approved grant of £150,000.
As the finish line comes into view, thanks to the ingenious ideas, strenuous efforts and generosity of individuals, organisations and companies the fundraising effort is on track. If this momentum continues and the last £35,000 is achieved by the 30th the Eastgate auditorium will be transformed.
