The 7 August 2019 saw Underbelly’s Circus Hub with a packed house, gathered for a special gala performance of Danny MacAskill’s Drop and Roll raising £6,915 in support of OneCity Trust’s work in Edinburgh.
The reaction from the audience was immense with both the children and the adults making it the noisiest show so far.
The Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Minister for Europe, Migration and International Development Ben Macpherson MSP (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) and Underbelly’s directors Ed Bartlam and Charlie Wood were among those making a noise as Danny MacAskill, Duncan Shaw and Alex Coleborn showed off the biking tricks which have made them household names.
Danny MacAskill’s Drop and Roll was a sold out show during Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.
The gala was the Underbelly’s latest initiative to raise money for OneCity Trust’s work, following the £29,000 they raised at Edinburgh’s Christmas at Silent Light and at the Torchlight Procession at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay.
