Shakespeare at Traquair Exhibition 2015

To celebrate our 20th anniversay, we organised an exhibition of costumes, props, banners, posters, photographs, videos, posters, programmes and press cuttings in the Anne Younger Studio at the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles. This has a nice symmetry, as the group was established as part of a campaign to raise money for an arts centre in Peebles and we were the first local group to perform when the Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre open in March 2004.  The exhibition ran from the 21st September to 12th October.
