Following an award-winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Gigglemug Theatre's debut musical arrives at the King's Head Theatre, and we are so very excited. With the musical sponsored by Timpson Ltd themselves, discover five reasons to see this hilarious show.

1. Find out how cobbling and key cutting came together under one roof

Ever questioned how the beloved high street chain Timpson came to combine shoes and keys within their stores? Well, wonder no more as Timpson: The Musical explains the origins of everyone's favourite cobblers.

2. Find out whether you're a 'Montashoe' or a 'Keypulet'!

The show follows the warring houses of Montashoe and Keypulet, two inventing-obsessed dynasties, whose paths cross and cause absolute mayhem. You might also see a link to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in there as well.

3. It's excellent late night entertainment

Grab a beer, head down to the King's Head to see them perform in their late night cabaret slot for an 'unashamedly wacky' and 'utterly hilarious' new musical.

4. It's a five-star, award-winning comedy musical!

Timpson: The Musical premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe last summer, where it received rave reviews and an award from The Stage. Head down to the King's Head to see what all the fuss is about.

5. It has everything from tiny saws to the invention of the Lilo to cat flaps for people.

We aren't even kidding.
