Loversd of live entertainment are being encouraged to enjoy a fun evening of classic Shakespearean comedy this Saturday (9 July) at Duff House in Banff.

Much Ado About Nothing is timeless a comedy about two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, who get caught up in a malicious scheme that threatens their big day. Meanwhile marriage seems inconceivable for the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, Shakespeare’s wittiest and most loveable pair of reluctant lovers, whose endless sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.

Watch the story unfold as the Folksy Theatre Company bring this production to Duff House, as part of Historic Environment Scotland’s (HES) 2022 summer events programme.

Stephen Duncan, Director of Marketing and Engagement at HES, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with the Folksy Theatre Company to bring this classic Shakespearean production to Duff House.  There are many twists and turns to be enjoyed.

“This is part of our popular events programme, returning for the first time in two years, following the pandemic.  We’re looking forward to welcoming new and returning visitors to enjoy a range of fun packed, historically based live performances and interactive experiences across participating sites, while exploring Scotland’s rich heritage.”

Tickets for Much Ado About Nothing can be purchased through Historic Environment Scotland’s ticket store.

Doors open at 6.45pm and the performance starts at 7.30pm and finishes at 9.30pm.
