Enchantment as Pitscurry takes part in Scotland’s Open Gardens Week

THE gardens at Pitscurry Project, Whiteford, Pitcaple are set to come alive in August with a magical outdoor performance as part of Pitscurry Open Gardens Week.

The performance of “The Enchanted Garden” will take place against the backdrop of Bennachie, where the audience will be led around the meandering landscapes of the spectacular Pitscurry gardens. A variety of characters will pop up along the way with surprise performances as the story unfolds.

The performance forms part of Pitscurry Open Gardens week which takes place between August 4 and August 12, and is part of Scotland’s Garden Scheme.

The performers are all adults with learning disabilities who attend the Harlaw Centre, and the event is being run as a joint project between Artsability, Aberdeenshire Council and the Harlaw Centre.

The performance will start at 1.30 on Wednesday, August 8. Tickets for the event cost £4 and should be booked in advance by calling (01467) 621885.

Refreshments will be avaiable on the day and the prospective audience is reminded that, because it is an outdoor performance, to come prepared for rain.
