46th EDINBURGH FC SONG WRITING COMPETITION
We ended up with 20 entries for this year's competition and the general consensus reckoned there to be quite a high standard. Graham Bell, who travelled all the way from Crewe to take part was the judges winner ('Lord Londonderry') with the ever-popular George Machary 2nd (The Washing Line), and Callum MacPherson 3rd ('Corstorphine Portobello'). George also won the audience vote.
Next year's competition will be on Wednesday 24 May 2023; closing date Mon 15 May 2023. You can find the competition rules HERE.
Go HERE to get tickets for all EFC shows from April 27 to June 29 2022 (inc).
Alternatively go to Brown Paper Tickets our on-line box office.
We try to provide advance tickets up to (approximately) two months ahead so if you find a box office link unavailable it just means we haven't got round to that gig yet.
We always recommend buying in advance since, if a show sells out (and they do), we cannot push the walls of the venue back to accommodate additional seats!
all gigs start at 8pm
doors/bar from 7:30pm
