Today was a great day for The Walking Theatre Company, as our Creative Director, Sadie Dixon-Spain, travelled through to stunning Pitlochry, for a production meeting with the brilliant team at Pitlochry Festival Theatre and the Explorer’s Garden! TWTC were even luckily enough to have a sneak peak at the Explorer’s Garden before it opens to the public!
And why were TWTC in Pitlochry today?
Because The Walking Theatre Company are thrilled to be a part of Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s 2015 Summer Season, and Sadie headed along for a site-visit, to meet with the team, and to get planning some interactive outdoor Walking Theatre!
