9th September

Cawdor Castle

Join The HandleBards all-female troupe at Cawdor Castle for a bicycle-powered, farcical production of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’.

This show has been described as a “frantic, delirious, full-of-beans show like you’ve never seen before”, so expect some frivolity.

This is an outdoor production, so feel free to bring a chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to tuck into, and dress for that Highland weather!

Chairs, picnics, blankets are welcome at this event, so bring the family and make a day of it!

Tickets are £16.50 and are available from the Cawdor Castle website now.
