Step back in time to 19th century Peebles as seen through the eyes of local writer (and people watcher) James Grosart.  Grosart witnessed a period of great change: Peebles was a rural village when he was born in 1827 but by the time of his death in 1905 the railways had transformed it into a flourishing industrial town. 

Using Grosart’s warm-hearted and witty reminiscences, Julian Goodacre and a small cast of actors bring events and the characters of the town to life, giving us fascinating glimpses into the lives of real people from the past as well as insights into Peebles as it is today. 

This show coincides with the republishing of Grosart’s book Chronicles from Peebles Briggate.  Proceeds from the sale of the book and ticket sales from this show and are being donated to The Eastgate Theatre.
