Daily – May to 31st October
Duchess Kitty Exhibition Scotland’s first female MP
Blair Castle, Blair Atholl PH18 5TL
The story of Scotland’s first female MP, is the story of how society changed to allow women to have the vote. The Duchess affectionately known as Kitty, a petite beauty and talented musician. She visited Blair Castle in 1896 and stole the 8th Duke’s heart. She was initially a vocal opponent of women’s suffrage in her earlier years. Relatively unknown by the public today the new exhibition will explain what an important and influential lady she was. In 1924 she became the first Scottish women MP often arguing against the government, she was never afraid to voice her opinions. She voted against her female peers being able to vote at 21. She was forced to leave the party on account of her strongly held beliefs there should be no appeasement with Adolf Hitler. A fervent campaigner for women and children both at home and abroad she visited war zones reporting back on conditions. Once her political career ended she returned to the Castle and her duties with her usual enthusiasm, pride and love. Tel: 01796 481207 Web: https://blair-castle.co.uk/

The Crucible by Arthur Miller

20 June @ 8:00 pm - 27 September @ 8:00 pm
The Crucible by Arthur Millar at Pitlochry

20th June to 27th September (various times and days)
The Crucible by Arthur Miller
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
For the puritanical folk of Salem, Massachusetts, the news that their young women have been conjuring spirits in the forest is devastating. It means the devil is amongst them. And the devil must be hunted down and driven out, whatever the cost. Fear and suspicion spirals quickly out of control, unleashing a murderous powder keg of accusations, hysteria, lust and revenge. Arthur Miller’s 1953 play is one of the most powerful pieces of 20th century theatre. Written as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the US government persecuted its citizens for being communists, this parable of politics, religious fervour and fear is a masterpiece which still resonates in the 21st Century. Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions. Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626
