Family entertainment favourites Funbox have announced their final show at Aberdeen's Music Hall as they embark on their last ever string of dates.
The much-loved trio of Kevin Macleod, Anya Scott-Rodgers and Bonzo the Dog have delighted thousands of children and their families across the country since they first took to the stage in 2015.
2022 will see Funbox hit the road one last time – and they plan to go out with a bang.
Formerly of The Singing Kettle, Kevin, Anya, and former musical partner Gary Coupland created Funbox after the end of the legendary children’s entertainment act in 2015.
Balancing traditional singalong songs and brand new compositions with a distinctly Scottish flavour, over the years Funbox have developed their own unique brand of modern manic humour and organised chaos that fans love.
At the heart of every show is the magical but mysterious Funbox, which contains everything audiences need to sing a song or have an adventure.
For their ultimate year of touring, Anya and Kevin will take the Funbox for a final whirl before hanging up their keys.
Aberdeen audiences will be treated to the fantastic Jungle Party on Saturday, August 6, perfect for kids of all ages – from nought to 90. Audiences can expect jumbo-sized jungle themed fun for all the family, with audiences encouraged to come dressed as their favourite wild animal.
Anya Scott-Rodgers said: “Funbox has been an incredible part of our lives, and visiting Aberdeen was always a highlight. All good things must come to an end, and we’re planning to go out on a high.
"We can’t wait to perform at The Music Hall one final time and say a fond farewell to our loyal audience.”
Kevin Macleod said: “Seven years have come and gone in the blink of an eye and we still can’t believe how lucky we’ve been to call this our job.
"We’re looking forward to welcoming audiences to the Music Hall to sing with us for one last big Funbox hoolie.”

Since forming, Funbox have taken their special brand of family fun the length and breadth of the country and beyond, with memorable performances in Orkney, Cambridge – and plenty of places in between.
