Edinburgh’s Christmas And Spiegeltent International Announce ‘La Clique Noel’

Born out of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2004 in a genius moment by David Bates, owner and producer of The Famous Spiegeltent, La Clique has gone on to global acclaim and sell out audiences across the world, including Sydney, New York, Montreal, Brighton, Adelaide, London and of course Edinburgh. La Clique returns home to the scene of the crime – Edinburgh – for a very special seasonal treat; La Clique Noël.


With its dysfunctional collection of extraordinary new artists and don’t-miss favourites, the show will feature a scintillating live band and the best of the best in

adult, genre-bending, New Variety from the subterranean world of circus, comedy, cabaret, variety, magic, burlesque and subversive performance clubs.

Previous much loved acts have included Boys in baths, twins in fish bowls, disappearing red hankies, Blue Rabbits, spinning Elvises and magic dragons. This special Christmas collection for Edinburgh will be no exception. La Clique Noël is compulsory Christmas fun and the perfect night out!

David Bates said:

“We’re coming home for Christmas! We’ve got some saucy seasonal treats in store for Scotland this winter with some new international acts that will bend your minds and bring the fishnets to your Christmas stocking!”

Charlie Wood and Ed Bartlam, Directors of Underbelly and Edinburgh’s Christmas said:

“We want to offer audiences a five-star night out where the live entertainers will have them on the edge of their seats with their hearts in their mouths. La Clique is the best of its kind in the world and we’re delighted they are going to spice up Christmas in Scotland’s capital this year. Tickets go on sale for La Clique Noël now, but we will reveal the rest of the programme, including family shows and new attractions on Wednesday 20 September. We look forward to sharing new and exciting elements of Edinburgh’s Christmas with you then.”

The Lord Provost, Frank Ross, said:

“Last year, Edinburgh’s Christmas drew over one million visitors and regulars will be delighted to hear festival favourites La Clique will be making a return. They are real crowd-pleasers, not just in Edinburgh but all over the world. I’m looking forward to the full programme details for our Christmas festivities being revealed later in the year.”

Tickets for La Clique Noël go on sale today (15 June). The full programme for Edinburgh’s Christmas will be released on Wednesday 20 September 2017.
