Our Romeo & Juliet poster competition may be over, but that hasn’t stopped talented people from across the country sending in their beautiful interpretations!
This was created by a S3 pupils at Gorgiemills School, Edinburgh. Some of the pupils there are taking part in our The Close project and the whole school has been working on Romeo & Juliet for the last year through different subjects and arts forms.

Gorgeous views on the way to Inverness where our Education team worked with 20 participants from Glenurqhart Nursey in the forests overlooking Loch Ness.

Here are two of the beautiful sites we used in Aberdeen for our Hansel & Gretel workshops for nursery children.

The workshops were based on the themes of Hansel & Gretel and combined live music, movement, and exploring being outdoors in the woods.

The sessions were led by a Scottish Ballet Education Officer and for added excitement and atmosphere in an already magical setting, a live musician!
