OK, so it’s fair comment that when it comes to entertainment Mull can’t compete with what’s to be found in our big cities. Yet, despite Mull being just a little off the beaten track, there are still a surprising range of entertainment opportunities for holiday-makers.
I was just perusing the An Tobar website this morning when I was reminded of this fact. This November the comedian Ed Byrne is on Mull for a stand-up show, which, much to my disappointment, is already sold out. Ed’s probably best known for his regular appearances on the BBC’s ‘Mock the Week’. That would have been a definite excuse for a trip back up to Beach House to catch that!
Once you start to do a little digging though, it quickly becomes apparent that you can find quite a range of shows dotted across the island, using as venues the various village halls to be found from Fionnphort and Bunessan to Dervaig and Craignure.
The listings website I generally find has a good cross-section of events and shows on offer around Mull is The List, though there are others such as Wild Isles which covers a wider area, but focuses exclusively on outdoors events and activities.
Oddly though, when I checked The List website for the Ed Byrne show in An Tobar, it was nowhere to be found! Can’t win them all…
