The Edinburgh Secret Society

Shhhhh. The Edinburgh Secret Society are back, and have just announced that they have two secret (and, amazingly, free!) events coming up...

The Edinburgh Secret Society organise events for those of a curious disposition. They pop up every now and again in some of Edinburgh's quirkiest and unusual venues, and host nights that can be verbal, theatrical and experimental - all designed to inform, entertain and bewilder. Audiences are sworn not to reveal a single detail about the evening, but I can promise you that it's super fun, definitely worth getting a ticket for, and not quite as intensely weird as it might appear.

The first, on July 15th, is EXPERMENTAL - a preview of Richard Wiseman's new Fringe show. It promises to be a show like no other, because it doesn't have a performer... and you'll be taken through a series of psychological experiements to make you laugh, gasp and scream. I'm not sure what that means really, but Richard Wiseman is always excellent and very, very worth seeing.

The second, on July 16th, will be a preview of Peter Lamont's new show, THINKING OUTSIDE THE BRAIN (I'm spotting a previewy theme here). It promises to let you "actually get to think outside your brain" which makes no sense to me, but it's the Secret Society! It's going to be a bit weird, but it'll be bloody good too, and that's what's important.

As these are preview nights (and because the ESS are dead nice), the events are free - you pay £5 to buy a ticket, and you'll be given your £5 back on arrival. Tickets are onsale here at 10am on Friday 11th July (that's tomorrow!) and you'll need to be quick - the last event sold out in THREE minutes.


  1. that sounds so exciting! I've always loved the idea of secret societies and learning about them!
