This tour is a great chance to get under the skin of Trainspotting the book and the film, and read and maybe re-enact some of the famous and not so famous passages. It’s re-discovering the 1990s cultural phenomenon and what lies behind it - the grim reality of heroin and the collision with HIV. There’s some rough language, we can’t avoid it. Fun and interesting. “I hate being Scottish. We’re the lowest of the f***ing low, the scum of the earth, the most wretched, servile, miserable, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilisation. Some hate the English, but I don’t. They’re just w***ers. We, on the other hand, are colonised by w***ers…” © John Hodge, 1996
Best if you read Trainspotting the book or see the film first - but it doesn’t matter too much, you will afterwards!
