Hunt & Darton and Scottee like each other a lot these days, in fact they like each other so much they are planning a mega week together, doing what they do best in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival.
Imagine their worlds combining – pineapples and glitter slash, roast dinner sarnies against pork pie platters!
We are proposing a pop up performance space, open for 12 hours a day for 10 days during the festival. Our city centre hang out will house all the joys of Hunt & Darton Cafe with added Scottee’s Social – a nightly variety knees up come social club with turns, darts and bar games – they’ll be meat raffles, beermats and cheese triangles for everyone!
Its a poncey performance space.
Its a drunken festival hang out.
Its a right knees up.
Its definitely art.

PREVIOUS TOUR LOCATIONS
March 2014 – saw the tour kick off in style with our pop-up in Brighton as part of this year’s hub for SICK! Festival and supported by The Basement. Guest waiters, theme days and hosted talks approached the core themes of the festival (Death, Mental illness, Aging and Adolescence) collaborating with medical practitioners, academics, artists and local groups. Guest waiters included artists: Brian Lobel, Figs in Wigs, Odd Comic and Scottee.
May 2014 – we opened the second of our pop-up cafe’s in Cambridge to overwhelming press and local support! Our partners on this leg of the tour were the lovely Eat Cambridge and Cambridge Junction. We spent all four weeks of the pop-up being inundated with customers.
As part of our tour, we have developed our own special loyalty scheme with the help of LOW PROFILE
