Having written their first song together as a band in February of 2013, Aberdeen’s watchfires didn’t look back: they played their first gig six weeks later, with a well-received debut EP A Captive Still following in July
The Lemon Tree’s artistic programme celebrates the new, up and coming, experimental and alternative in music, theatre, dance, performance art, comedy, spoken word and creative learning.
We’re producing and presenting tomorrow’s legends today, welcoming local and international artists and companies, hosting boundary pushing Artist in Residence programmes, supporting emergent practitioners and homegrown talent and acting as a festivals hub for the North-east. And discover Freshly Squeezed, new voices in music and theatre.
During 2015 The Lemon Tree is home to our producer hub project supported by Creative Scotland to help strengthen the theatre infrastructure in the North-east, incubate new work, support emergent companies and offer a host of professional development opportunities.
Our creative learning team is based at The Lemon Tree offering far reaching opportunities for young people and communities to participate in the arts. Our Youth Theatre is one of the biggest in Scotland with a membership of 165.
The Lemon Tree offers an excellent chance to gather your friends together and enjoy a night you’ll be talking about for weeks to come. Take a look at what’s on and plan your social life now!
