Winter Performance Project

We don’t want to give too much away about our ‘Winter Performance Project’ at present, but what we can tell you about the show is…

  1. Where: Outdoors in the centre of Rothesay.
  2. When: Friday 10th and Saturday 11th December.
  3. What: A multi-media and live action show, with some pre-recorded sequences and other sequences performed live.
  4. What else: Each performance will last around half an hour (so there’s no time to get too cold!) and there will be more than one performance each evening (depending on numbers, demand for tickets and covid restrictions pertaining at the time).

Here’s how you can get involved:

1. October Holidays – 5 days of activities in the first week of the holidays
