Following advice from the UK and Scottish Governments for people to limit social contact to combat the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, and in conjunction with events organisers who have made the choice to close their venues; we have taken the difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone our immediate JUNGLE PARTY and HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO shows. The relevant box offices are understandably extremely busy dealing with the repercussions not only for our show but all the other events they had scheduled. Some have asked for patience as they deal with ticketing issues caused. If you had tickets for one of the affected performances please check with venue’s website regarding their ticket refund or reschedule policies.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly but these are unprecedented times and with the situation around Covid-19 changing rapidly, we are rightly prioritising the health, safety and wellbeing of all our customers a well as our Funbox team. We are very aware that our fans and followers will be disappointed, as we are, but we are determined to reschedule the affected shows to a later date when things are hopefully back to normal. Please see below for the shows currently affected.
Live performances are the financial lifeblood of FUNBOX and, as for so many, these are difficult times but we are working hard to find ways to stay connected with our fans in the coming weeks. Look out for updates here and on our social media pages for what we have planned. We are so grateful for all the love and continuing support you’ve shown.
Please stay safe, stay strong and stay positive
Gary, Anya, Kevin and all the FUNBOX team xxx

IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE?…. NO, IT’S FUNBOX
Our second tour of 2020 is HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO and will see the gang pulling on their spandex, diving into their capes and heading up, up and away for some super soar-away singalong silliness as they take the steps needed to become ultimate heroes!
Packed with classics like ‘Leapfrog’ and ‘Bear Hunt’, Funbox favourites and new songs too, HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO is the ideal treat for all your little (and big) caped crusaders.
Come dressed as a Superhero to join in the fun! Pants over trousers encouraged but not mandatory.

DON’T MISS OUR FIRST SHOWS OF 2020
We are very excited to be kicking off a new decade with TROUBLE IN TOY TOWN at Howden Park Centre in Livingston (4th & 5th Jan) and Aberdeen’s Music Hall (11th Jan)
There’s trouble in Toy Town – someone’s arrived who is up to no good. The mischievous Gnorbert the Gnome is about, creating mayhem and pinching everyone’s favourite things. Mayor Bear has asked Anya, Kevin, Gary and Bonzo to look after his most precious toy, so it’s up to them to make sure Gnorbert doesn’t get his hands on it. Plus there are keys to discover, games to play and songs to sing, so they’ll definitely need your help too.
With smashing singalongs such as ‘Bunny Fou Fou’ and ‘The Grand Old Duke Of York’, FUNBOX favourites and brand new songs, TROUBLE IN TOY TOWN is the perfect New Year treat for all the family. We may even need your help on stage too!
Come dressed as, or bring, your favourite toy – big people too!
