Organisers have announced that tickets are now on sale for the special events and performances that have been added to the 2011 Bruce Festival.
Action packed historical drama, a medieval banquet, equestrian stunts and concerts in Dunfermline Abbey are all part of a line up that is sure to appeal to visitors both locally and from all over Scotland.
One of the showpieces is A Legendary Walk Through Time, a theatrical performance set in Dunfermline’s atmospheric Glen. Performed by Living History, the acclaimed historical theatre group, the show brings the story of King Robert alive in a dramatic tale narrated by the ghost of Bruce himself and capturing the heroics, skullduggery and humour of Bruce’s Scotland.
Another eye-catching show is the Equestrian Fairytale set in Pittencrief Park and performed by Les Amis D’Onno, a specialist horseback cabaret team, originally from France.
The Bruce Festival takes place from Friday August 26 to Sunday August 28 and will again be centred on a bustling medieval village recreated in Pittencrieff Park. Admission to the village including all of its family entertainment and activities is free.
“We’re delighted by the variety and quality of this year’s Bruce Festival line up,” said Susan Hughes, Chief Executive of Dunfermline Delivers, the event’s organisers.
“We want to inject a real energy into how we celebrate this remarkable era in Scotland’s history so that it becomes enjoyable and relevant to audiences today – and makes Dunfermline the modern day home of the Bruce story.”
A grand medieval banquet and a traditional ceilidh have also been added to the Festival programme and following the success of last year, there will be two concerts of traditional Scottish music to be performed in Dunfermline Abbey by Glasgow Academy Musical Theatre Arts.
