Peebles’ Eastgate Theatre travels from America to Arabia next week as, first, the annual Amerrycana Christmas kicks off with a Yee-haw! and a Ho-ho-ho-down on Saturday, December 15, at 7.30pm.

“Live from the Grand Old Eastgate Theatre, the Downright Homespun Radio Company brings you award-winning music from the DHRC House Band and razor-sharp comedy from our Radio Acting Company,” writes a spokesperson. “There’s the turkey queue, the Drunkwatch team, local sponsorship and the latest news, all interlaced with foot-stompin’ bluegrass Christmas music.”

Then, on Friday, December 21, at 7.30pm, the Christmas Hafla is back. “For a fun night out, Borders Arabic dance brings you their annual dance show, featuring Club Bellydance, our own Peebles dancers, and the famous and hilarious Neimah as your compere,” promises a promoter.

“Relax with wonderful music, from classical Arabic to Egyptian pop.”

Tickets for Amerrycana cost £11, and Christmas Hafla £10. 01721 725777, or www.eastgatearts.com
