Trainspotting Live is coming to Preston Guild Hall in July.


The King’s Head Theatre and In Your Face Theatre production of Trainspotting Live recaptures the famous novel and globally successful film in which Mark Renton and his friends live through the Edinburgh heroin scene of the 80s.

In this 21st anniversary production, In Your Face Theatre’s Scottish cast have put their own spin on Harry Gibson’s original stage adaptation which in itself came to be instantly successful and controversial.

The show has been described as “A must-see for fans of the novel and film alike” by the Daily Telegraph, “A big fat hit. Just don’t sit near the toilet!” by NME and “Fresh, funny, grim and glorious.” by the Londonist.

The Times also said “I’m not sure ‘in your face’ covers it. In your everything really.”

You can attend the show if you are aged above 16, due to it containing scenes of nudity, strong language, sex, violence, drug use and it could induce claustrophobia.

From Monday 17 July to Friday 21 July the show will start at 7pm, plus 8.45pm on Thursday and Friday.

Seated tickets are priced at £24.50, Floor mats at £21.50 and students can attend for £11.
