10 Years of The Skinny: Too Much Fun Club video

Video by News Team | 15 Oct 2015

We've teamed up with Edinburgh visual art collective Too Much Fun Club to mark our tenth birthday with a short film celebrating the first decade of The Skinny.

Too Much Fun Club have taken their collaborative live art to a host of venues and festivals across Scotland since their formation in the early 2000s, and TMFC's Tommy Dutch was included on publisher Canongate's Future 40 list of forty of Scotland's leading storytellers back in 2013.

The Skinny celebrates its 10th birthday this Friday (16 Oct) with a free party at The Mash House, Guthrie Street, Edinburgh from 9pm-3am, featuring Lost Map, Detour Scotland and Substance DJs, a spoken word showcase from Neu! Reekie!, and live sets from Stillhound and Zyna Hel.
