There are a number of major productions and West End hits in Eden Court’s programme of live events for the autumn and winter.

It is the Inverness venue’s first full-print brochure in more than two years with the Empire and OneTouch theatres once again open to full capacity.

There are dozens of cultural highlights from drama, dance, music, opera and comedy that will bring a broad range of internationally acclaimed talent to the Highlands.

Theatrical productions include: SIX, Steven Hogget’s dance theatre experience Burn, Pride & Prejudice* (*Sort of), this year’s brand new pantomime Peter Pan and the 70th anniversary of The Mousetrap.

An audacious new show from Alan Cumming is one of many options available to Inverness audiences for a night out at the theatre.

Comedy mavericks making the trip north this year include Jack Dee, Jason Manford and Jimeon.

Family audiences are well-served with David Walliam’s The Demon Dentist, family favourite The Snow Queen and Around the World in 80 Days promises to be a thrilling new production.

Scotland’s national companies are well-served, with Scottish Ballet’s COPPELIA, Scottish Opera’s The Verdi Collection and the RSNO’s Viennese Gala. From the National Theatre of Scotland, James IV – Queen of the Fight sees Blythe Duff and Daniel Cahill return to the absorbing James plays saga.

Music highlights include national institutions Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham; Eddi Reader celebrates her 40th year on stage; Kathryn Joseph, Jeffrey Lewis
and comedian Josie Long prepare Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer; and Paul Jones and Dave Kelly are an acoustic duo that true blues fans won’t want to miss.

Eden Court will also play host to some brilliant speakers, with special events on stage including internationally acclaimed Outlander-author Diana Gabaldon; conservationist and presenter Saba Douglas-Hamilton; and the world’s greatest living explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

Eden Court chief executive Rebecca Holt said: “I’m delighted that we’re launching Eden Court’s first full season brochure in over two years – and my first one since joining as chief executive.

“Eden Court’s mission is to inspire people to discover and love the arts by bringing the world to the Highlands and taking the Highlands to the world.

“This season illustrates our commitment to delivering this mission with a programme of live performance filled with the most exciting shows and artists from across the UK and beyond.”
