See you there, me hearties!

A successful sunny day in Pitlochry!

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!

Pitlochry Festival Theatre, situated in the picturesque surroundings of Highland Perthshire, is an internationally renowned venue, famous for hosting high quality productions and attracting a 100,000 visitors from all across the UK and abroad every year!

TWTC are delighted to be bringing two of our outdoor, interactive Walking Theatre productions – ‘The White Rabbit’s Treasure Hunt’ on the 19th of July, and ‘Macbeth’s Way’ on the 23rd of August!

We will also be bringing our Flying Kitchen events to the Tummel & Tay Festival – A Highland High Tea in the Explorer’s Garden, on the 21st of June!

We would love to see you at Pitlochry Festival Theatre – tickets available now!
