Whats On at the Macphail


We are currently planning our programme for the coming year. If you have any ideas or would like to put on an event please get in touch.


Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre show


No introduction needed here. Three Billy Goats Gruff have their tussle with a grumpy Troll. Lots of trippety-trap and fun with these beautifully made cloth puppets.

Fee Fi Fo Fum, a lively story about Jack who plants a magic bean, grows a beanstalk and ventures into the Giant’s Castle. . . .

Faithful to the original stories, Clydebuilt have created a show with baskets and boxes that become a house or even a castle.

7th December 2022 at 16:30 in the theatre at the Macphail centre

Grassroots Jazz Fundraising Campaign
There is currently a campaign running to help struggling grassroots jazz clubs that didn’t qualify for funding in the post pandemic Culture Recovery Fund. It’s a desperate time for UK jazz and we have already seen closures, sometimes of clubs that have been in existence for decades.
If you would like support this cause then please visit 
https://www.grassrootsjazz.com where there are a number of fundraising initiatives, including a raffle, a ‘gofundme’ page, a direct PayPal donations link - with an option to opt for ‘gift aid’. The site will also keep you informed of live fundraising events and a list of clubs that have received grants.
Your help would be appreciated enormously.

Ray Bradshaw: Deaf Com 1

Ray Bradshaw, comedian tour dates : Chortle : The UK Comedy Guide


Following his groundbreaking 2018 show, Deaf Comedy Fam, Ray Bradshaw’s new stand-up show, Deaf Com 1, covers his recent fatherhood, teaching his young son sign language and a disastrous trip to Bahrain!

International award-winning comic, Ray, spent 2021/22 touring the UK as John Bishop’s handpicked support act, having previously toured with Frankie Boyle in 2019.  Ray was the first comedian to ever win a Scottish Culture Award and is a regular host of Scotland’s most popular radio show, Breaking The News.

Ray is a CODA (like in the Oscar winning film) and grew up with deaf parents. All of his shows are performed in both BSL and English, with Deaf Comedy Fam becoming the first ever live comedy experience for more than 800 deaf audience members.

Ray’s clever, charming and very funny comedy has received critical acclaim from critics and fans alike.

“funny and fascinating… one in six of us will lose our sense of hearing. Deaf Comedy Fam proves it doesn’t mean you have to lose your sense of humour” ★★★★ The Scotsman
