A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'The Tale O' Fanny Cha Cha opens @ The Lemon Tree


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 was 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 Lounge can hold 550 at standing gigs and just under 300 seated.
  • The Studio has a capacity of 166 seated
  • We have two bars at The Lemon Tree. The Lounge bar stocks a wide variety of drinks including local brewery Brewdog beers while Kate’s Bar offers the chance to relax before seeing a show in the Studio.

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!
