The Forgotten Orchard


Actors portraying characters on stage in a theatrical performance
  • Monday 23 September
  • Town Hall, Forres

Theatre, Schools

Suitable for P2-P6.

Running time 60 minutes + 20 minute demonstration and Q&A (80 minutes total)

A show dedicated to apples.

Whenever Katy eats an apple, she’s reminded of her Grandad, an extraordinary man who grew 24 varieties from an old piece of wasteland (the 24th tree being extra special). In remembering her childhood and apple-loving Grandad, Katy realises what she needs to do to continue the orchard’s legacy.

Told through storytelling, music and Scot’s ballads, The Forgotten Orchard brings to life Scotland’s rich orchard heritage and celebrates diversity, homegrown food and the joy of harvest.
