16th - Family favourites Funbox return to Aberdeen with brand new extravaganza, PYJAMA PARTY. The rib-tickling trio’s slapstick slumber party is not to be slept on!

It’s time to treat kids and parents alike to an evening of fun and frivolity as Funbox return to The Music Hall, Aberdeen on January 16th – with sing-along favourites guaranteed to get audiences on their feet.

The entertaining trio of Kevin Macleod, Anya Scott-Rodgers and Bonzo the Dog promise a show filled to the brim with jokes, laughs and joy for all the family.
Formerly of The Singing Kettle, Funbox maintains the balance of traditional singalong songs and brand new compositions with a distinctly Scottish flavour, but with their own brand of modern manic humour and organised chaos.

Kevin Macleod said: “It’s been wonderful to grow Funbox over the last six years and to see our shows become a highlight in many families’ calendars. We always have a great time in Aberdeen and can’t wait to return there in January.”
