A selection of the latest media releases and general news from the Eastgate.

Righting a Historical Wrong

The Scottish witch trials, an infamous period in Scotland’s history, are brought into sharp focus on 19 Feb when folk duo Rachel Newton and Lauren MacColl use fiddle, harp and spoken word to tell stories of some of those who were persecuted when they come to Peebles on the last night of their current UK tour.

Love is in the Air

Valentine’s Day will be celebrated in style at the Eastgate Theatre this 14 February with a screening of the most famous love story of all – a performance of Romeo & Juliet by the world-class dancers of The Royal Ballet.

Wayward Jane Makes Live Return at the Eastgate

With music that offers a delicious blend of American folk and Old Time traditions, it’s no surprise that Wayward Jane have been described as just that little bit different to any other band currently playing in Scotland.   Audiences will get a chance to find out just how different when this colourful quartet plays live at the Eastgate Theatre on Fri 28 Jan.

A Year Like No Other

‘Normal’, as so many have discovered, is something that can disappear quickly but return only slowly. Recovering from the uncertainty of complete shutdown was a gradual process for the Eastgate Theatre this year but with the generous support of friends, the hunger of people to experience creative activities and performances again, plus the continuing development of the programme, the theatre is now fully back up and running, welcoming regular customers and new visitors.
