To celebrate the reopening of aparthotel Native in Edinburgh, 30 lucky fans can score free tickets for an exclusive pizza pop-up event, with Scottish alternative rock band, Fatherson.

This exclusive ‘Cooking With Fatherson X Native’ event will be a chance for fans of the band to hang out and enjoy complimentary hand-stretched pizza and cold beers served up by the band to lucky attendees.

The band, which consists of Ross Leighton, Greg Walkinshaw and Marc Strain, have toured relentlessly including sold-out headline shows across the UK and Europe, plus support slots with Lewis Capaldi, Kings Of Leon, Biffy Clyro, Frightened Rabbit, Augustines, Idlewild and Twin Atlantic

When they’re not touring, Fatherson spends the rest of their time cooking up a storm - and sharing their recipes with fans through their ‘Cooking With Fatherson’ channels on their website.

Their pizza pop-ups have become legendary amongst other bands backstage at festivals across the country and now they're bringing their cooking to Native Edinburgh.

To get your hands on complimentary tickets for this intimate gig, simply head to Fatherson’s Instagram from Tuesday 25 May to Thursday 27 May for your chance to score tickets.

Greg Walkinshaw of Fatherson said: "Cooking With Fatherson started out after we took our pizza oven on tour feeding our crew, pals and other bands backstage at festivals.

"After a long year without seeing anyone, we're really looking forward to dishing out some slices to some new pals next month in Edinburgh."

Native Edinburgh, which opened last year in Kintore House on Queens Street, was originally constructed in the 1790s.

The building is a significant part of the original fabric of Edinburgh’s New Town, an area of outstanding neo-classical and Georgian architecture and a UNESCO world heritage site.

With 82 apartments comprising studios, one bedrooms, and ground floor leisure and co-working spaces, Native Edinburgh provides the flexibility and amenities of a design-led boutique hotel, coupled with the space, comfort and privacy of a home from home.

Gary White, regional manager of Scotland Native aparthotels, said: “Like the rest of the world, it feels good to be back reopened and being able to put on intimate events.

“Cooking with Fatherson is our first event on our Edinburgh terrace and we couldn’t think of a better way to kick things off than with this incredible Scottish band.

“If you’d like to join us, make sure you visit Fatherson’s Instagram page.”

Cooking with Fatherson X Native Edinburgh will take place on Saturday 5 June from 4pm until 7pm on the Native Edinburgh terrace.
