About Bard in the Botanics


Outdoor festivals of Shakespeare are a tried and tested formula which has proven successful in almost every major cultural capital in Europe and North America – New York, London, Chicago, Vancouver, Paris, Helsinki, San Francisco – even Bozeman, Montana!

Bard in the Botanics is proud to have added the name of Glasgow to this list.

Since our first festival, we have staged more than 40 productions of Shakespeare’s work to audiences totalling over 50,000. Details of these can be found on the Past Projects page.

Bard in the Botanics has performed in conjunction with Perth International Festival of the Arts, Big in Falkirk, the Merchant City Festival, Cumbernauld Theatre, North Lanarkshire Youth Arts Festival, Gilmorehill G12, the West End Festival and the macroberts arts centre, Stirling.
