Thesouthern has again teamed up with the Singing Kettle to give away two sets of family tickets for their new Fun Factory show in Edinburgh.

Singing Kettle team Cilla, Artie, Gary and Kevin have been left in charge of the toy-making machine at the Fun Factory and will need the help of the audience to make sure every toy is made properly and on time.

Even with all the work to do, there will still be time for lots of “Kettle Openings” bursting with surprises.

The audience will join in for loads of non-stop sing-along favourites such as Jelly Belly, Favourite Colour, and Homemade Band as well as some brilliant brand new songs. Jock and Jeremy, the singing chefs, will be on hand with their crazy cooking routines that normally end in mayhem, while Bonzo the Dog will also make an appearance.

A spokesperson said: “The Singing Kettle will be at their brilliant best with Cilla, Artie, Gary and Kevin in their wacky working costumes, ready to delight and mesmerise all ages with superb audience participation. Some lucky children will end up on stage to join in the excitement.

“The Fun Factory is a fantastic treat for the whole family that will have you rocking with laughter and singing all the way home. Remember to dress up in a funny hat.”

The show runs from Friday January 21 to January 23 in the Edinburgh Festival Theatre on Nicholson Street.

Tickets are priced at £13, family ticket £45, while groups of eight or over can gain admission for £8.50. A free ticket is available to anyone who books 10 tickets - phone 0131 529 6000 for further details.
