Our first collaboration 'Funshine on Leith' was the ONLY live comedy show to perform during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2020 and was a complete sell-out.

Join Invisible Cities’ award-winning tour guide Paul as he returns to tell you all about the women of Leith throughout history, from Mary of Guise to Mary Moriarty.

This joyful walking tour of Leith is packed with historical curiosities and uproarious anecdotes that will make you gasp with amazement and roar with laughter. Paul is a Leith legend in his own right, and you will find out why on the tour. Leith will never be the same again.

This tour supports Invisible Cities, a social enterprise that trains people who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city. They offer off the beaten track tours of Edinburgh, Glasgow, York and Manchester.

This is an open air tour where the Scottish Government’s safety measures will be respected. Places are limited to 12 people. Recommended age 18+. Contains strong language and adult themes, including sex and drugs.
