A truly unique comedy event coming out of Leith, created by Leith for Leithers, Funshine on Leith is led by tour guide Paul, who has written the tour especially for Leith Comedy Festival.

During what is described as a ‘rich, colourful walking event’ he takes his guests on a journey around the Port, sharing historical curiosities, personal anecdotes and juicy details that will make your jaw drop.
