downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

The Sock Puppets Go To Hollywood

Further to our Tube Surf about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival we now have more details about the shows of The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre.

They will be appearing at the Gilded Balloon in Bristo Square each night at 10.15pm from 5 to 30 August 2009. This is the third year that the Theatre will be taking part in the Fringe in an extravaganza entitled The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre Goes To Hollywood.

During their residency in the Scottish capitol they will be ably assisted by their right (and left) hand man, artist Kev F Sutherland. Indeed Kev is such a close personal friend of the company that it can be truly said that they don’t make a move without him.

• More details are on the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre website. Tickets are available from the Gilded Balloon website.
