Fatherson, made up of Ross Leighton, Greg Walkinshaw and Marc Strain, have headlined sold-out shows across the UK and Europe

The band,made up of Ross Leighton, Greg Walkinshaw and Marc Strain, have headlined sold-out shows across the UK and Europe and supported the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Kings Of Leon and Biffy Clyro.

When they’re not touring, Fatherson spends the rest of their time cooking up a storm - and sharing their recipes with fans through their ‘Cooking With Fatherson’ channels on their website.

Their pizza pop-ups have become legendary amongst other bands backstage at festivals across the country and now they're bringing their cooking to Native Edinburgh.

This exclusive ‘Cooking With Fatherson X Native’ event will be a chance for fans of the band to hang out and enjoy a pizza Fatherson on Native’s terrace. They’ve previously cooked for Lewis Capaldi so you’ll be in good company.

To get your hands on complimentary tickets for this intimate gig, simply head to Fatherson’s Instagram between Tuesday and Thursday next week to enter their giveaway.

Thirty lucky winners will be announced to join them at Native’s private garden terrace for this exclusive get-together and complimentary pizza and drink.

Greg Walkinshaw of Fatherson said: "Cooking With Fatherson started out after we took our pizza oven on tour feeding our crew, pals and other bands backstage at festivals. After a long year without seeing anyone, we're really looking forward to dishing out some slices to some new pals next month in Edinburgh."

Native Edinburgh - newly opened last year in Kintore House on Queens Street, was originally constructed in the 1790s.

Regional manager of aparthotels Gary White said: “Like the rest of the world, it feels good to be back reopened and being able to put on intimate events.

“Cooking with Fatherson is our first event on our Edinburgh terrace and we couldn’t think of a better way to kick things off than with this incredible Scottish band.”
