‘Seeing the unseen’ Exhibition

30 September 2019 @ 10:00 am - 26 January 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Daily until Sunday 26th January 2020
‘Seeing the unseen’ Exhibition
Aberfeldy Watermill, Mill Street, Aberfeldy, PH15 2BG.
The common purpose for three artists, Matt Storstein, Paul Martin and Jill Martin Boualaxai is to convey delight in the meaningful materiality of the world. Their works seek out the exceptional in the seemingly mundane; exploring the constant ebb and flow of the world around us. They use a similar contemplative and evocative approach which looks beneath the surface of things to discover the history and poetry of their subjects. In these works there are signs which trigger memory and knowledge, some of which remind us of past experiences and some which convey energy or excitement. We are open seven days a week 10am-5pm, (11am-5pm Sunday). 01887 822896 and  info@aberfeldywatermill.com

Barefoot In The Park at Pitlochry Festival Theatre

12 March @ 8:00 am - 29 March @ 5:00 pm
Pitlochry Festival Theatre

12 to 29 March, 2020
Barefoot In The Park
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
A romantic comedy about love, life and living together. In a break from rehearsing Summer Holiday and The Crucible in Pitlochry’s Summer Season, PFT’s Artistic Director Elizabeth Newman, who will direct the play, said: “We are thrilled to be making Barefoot in the Park with the Royal Lyceum Theatre next year. Neil Simon is famous for so many great comedies that have delighted audiences for decades. There’s no denying that Barefoot In The Park played on Broadway for 5 years because it is a totally joyous story. Neil Simon also decided to celebrate passionate women in this play. The incredible woman at the centre of this comedy is Corie. She is a glorious free-spirit striving to experience, like so many people, a full and happy life. She wants her marriage to Paul to be filled with love but faces some (recognisable!) bumps along the way. It’s also very funny and perfect for conjuring up that springtime feeling, when everything seems afresh and new and brimming of possibility. The kind of feeling that makes you want to run barefoot in Pitlochry or Princes Street Gardens! Set in glorious Manhattan, we promise that the production will be fresh and fizzy with fun sixties tunes and even a few jives and a couple of twists for audiences to enjoy”Kris Bryce, PFT’s Executive Director said: “Our production is expected to bring an additional 6,000 visitors to the area in a quieter period of the year.” Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626
