WIN tick­ets to see Fun­box

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

The Fun­box gang are back and hav­ing a hoo­te­nanny in Fort Wil­liam with their brand new show for 2017, High­land Fling. It has been non - stop for Fun­box since their first show in 2015, and now the former Singing Ket­tle trio have eight shows, six DVDs, five CDs and 24 cos­tumes to their name as they em­bark on their ninth tour in two years. When it was made clear that the Singing Ket­tle was not for sale, Gary, Anya and Kevin took their first steps into busi­ness. Gary said: ‘ We knew we could write songs, per­form and make mu­sic, but none of us had any real ex­pe­ri­ence of run­ning a busi­ness. We just went into it head first. Our Pi­rates and

Princesses tour was funded out of our own pock­ets and a Crowd­fund­ing cam­paign that saw us raise more than 20k in four weeks thanks to the sup­port of our fans.’

The gang ad­mit they were hav­ing far too much fun work­ing to­gether and en­ter­tain­ing fam­i­lies of Scot­land and be­yond to say good­bye.

Anya re­marked: ‘ We wanted to carry on, not just for us but for the chil­dren who loved com­ing to see us and the par­ents and grand­par­ents who wanted to take their chil­dren. It seemed like too im­por­tant a thing to let go.’

Fun­box of­fers the same tra­di­tional songs and silli­ness known and loved by many, but with their own brand of manic hu­mour with a mod­ern twist.

‘ We’ve been de­scribed as fresh and edgier than be­fore. Even the big peo­ple are en­joy­ing it! We spot­ted a few grown up mer­maids and deep sea divers at the DVD record­ing of our other tour at Glas­gow SEC back in Fe­bru­ary, Un­der­wa­ter

Ad­ven­ture. So here’s hop­ing there’s a few big peo­ple in their finest kilts and tam o’shanters for this one!’ laughs Kevin.

Take the high road (or the low road) and get roamin’ in the gloamin’ for Fun­box’s brand new show, High­land Fling.

Join Gary, Anya and Kevin as they take a trip to around Scot­land to bat­tle mid­gies, be­come monar­chs of the glen and hear the skirl of the bag­pipes in their lat­est sin­ga­long ad­ven­ture. There’s silli­ness ga­lore and songs to sing in this crazy new show for 2017.

You’ll need to help us get the Fun­box open – which con­tains ev­ery­thing you need to sing a song or have an ad­ven­ture – but which of our bon­nie wee keys should we use?

You may even be lucky enough to help the gang on stage!

Packed with fam­ily favourites such as Did you ever see a Lassie?, The Green Grass grew, and Ye can­nae shove yer Granny, as well as brand new songs, High­land Fling is the per­fect treat for young­sters of all ages – from nought to 90! And if yer gal­lus enough you might even get a chance to help us on stage! High­land Fling is at the Nevis Cen­tre, Fort Wil­liam, on Sun­day July 2, at 1pm.
