Theatre bosses in Musselburgh have been "heartened" by the response from venues in Musselburgh, across East Lothian and Edinburgh which have offered alternative spaces for their packed programme of events.

This follows the temporary closure of parts of The Brunton in Ladywell Way after a survey detected "structural issues" in the theatre's roof.

Michael Stitt, chair of The Brunton Theatre Trust said: "We've been deeply touched by the generosity and kindness shown by the people of East Lothian and the Scottish theatre community while we work hard to reschedule some ninety performances and events between now and June.

"Our performers and other venues have been incredibly accommodating at very short notice and we have had a positive response to the shows that have gone ahead so far.

"We’d like to thank our audiences, bookers and entertainers for their patience, support and good humour and would like to reassure them that the team at The Brunton is doing everything in its power to make sure that the show will go on."

Extra tickets have been released for the sell out show Lulu - For The Record which is on at the Gordon Aikman Theatre, George Square in Edinburgh, at 7.30pm on Friday, April 21.

The Scottish singing star has made music and memories with the greatest of all time. Elton John wrote songs with her, Bowie produced and recorded with her, McCartney duetted with her and one of the Bee Gees married her. It’s a story that has to be told and provides a "once-in-a-lifetime" insight into some of the world’s musical legends. The audience an join Lulu as she shares, for the first time, many untold stories, her memories and experiences with the greats – and enjoy with her the music that has been her constant companion.

Also at the Gordon Aikman Theatre at 7.30pm on Saturday is G4, one of the X Factor's most successful ever acts, dubbed the Kings of Popera. With their "unique style and unsurpassed trademark vocal harmonies," it is said G4 have to be heard live to "truly appreciate the power and passion of their voices." Extra tickets for this show have been made available.

Tribute is paid to the First Ladies of Country Music - Patsy Cline and Tammy Wynette - on Tuesday, April 25. The new venue for this sold out show is The Pleasance Theatre, 60 Pleasance, Edinburgh.

Tickets are available online at or by calling 0131 653 5245.

The Bistro which is open at The Brunton is not impacted by the building issues affecting the performance spaces and is available for pre-show meals.
