Bard out in the open air at the Macbob.

Pack a picnic and make the most of the long evenings with some outdoor theatre at Macrobert Arts Centre when Bard in the Botanics arrive with Hamlet on Sunday, July 21.

A student returns home from university to attend her father's funeral and finds her whole world turned upside down.

As she struggles to make sense of her mother's marriage to her uncle, news comes from beyond the grave that points toward murder and Hamlet is forced to make a terrible choice.

Is vengeance her only path forward? Can she follow her apparent destiny without destroying those closest to her? And will she survive a journey that takes her to the very brink of madness? Bard in the Botanics have staged more than 50 productions of Shakespeare's work to audiences totalling over 70,000 people.

They are committed to bringing high-quality, imaginative and accessible productions of Shakespeare's to audiences from across Scotland and beyond, and provide opportunities to experience, enjoy and participate in Shakespeare.

With Shakespeare's pieces originally performed outside, Bard in the Botanics return to original surroundings and lots of fresh air.

So grab a picnic, a chair, your friends and family and watch Shakespeare's most human and heartfelt tragedy on Sunday, July21 at 7pm.

If it rains the performance will be relocated to the Mainhouse for a much drier setting.

Tickets priced PS12.50/PS10.50 conc/PS6 students are on sale now from the Macrobert Box Office on 01786 466666, online at or by visiting in person from 10am.
