Not The Xmas Gigs

We’re truly sorry to tell you that – for the first time in more than a decade – Zap! Entertainment will not be rampaging all over Scotland with an army of singers, dancers, street theatre performers and chart acts for our regular Christmas Light Switch-on Extravaganzas. 🙁 Covid 19 has, of course, put paid to […]

Strange days indeed…

It’s happened. Covid 19 – the flu-like virus I first heard about when I was in Guangzhou, China with Judith and Hannah 8 weeks ago – has arrived in Scotland. It’s super infectious, it’s spreading and – as of today – The Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 (introduced by the First Minister on 31st March) is, by Royal Assent, […]

SLC’s Christmas Light Switch-ons

Zap! Entertainment initially got involved with South Lanarkshire’s Christmas Lights Campaign way back in 2007 when we put our “High School Musical” song and dance show on stage at Lanark’s Festive Street Market. From that one-off gig, we’ve gone on to produce SLC’s Seasonal Switch-ons every November for more than a decade. With a programme […]

STV Appeal/Ha Ha Hamilton 2016

One year on but still flush with the success of our first big adventure in stand-up, Zap! Entertainment was again asked to produce the Ha Ha Hamilton Comedy Festival. Almost immediately, we realised how Freddie Mercury must’ve felt when it came time to release the follow up single to “Bohemian Rhapsody”. How do you top […]

Click the video “start” button and relive the madness….

Tartan Party On The Green 2007

When more than 61,000 people applied for only 51,000 tickets to the Scotland-Italy Euro 2008 qualifier back in November 2007, Glasgow City Council thought it might be a good idea to organise an official “overspill event” for the 10,000+ football fans that would otherwise have been left at the turnstiles. So, the world’s biggest marquee […]
