Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford has praised the performers who took part in the Willowbank Centre’s production of ‘The Hoose’ which took place at Peterhead Community Theatre over two days.
Dr Whiteford was part of the audience for Thursday evening’s performance which told the story down through the centuries of the buildings in Peterhead’s Threadneedle Street which are currently being renovated to provide supported accommodation. The performance was supported by the National Trust for Scotland, which is involved in the refurbishment project and involved residents, friends and staff of Willowbank.
Commenting, Dr Whiteford said:
“This was a terrific performance by everyone involved which really brought the history of Peterhead to life for all those lucky enough to get to see it.
“It was a truly inspired way to celebrate the provision of the new supported accommodation at Threadneedle Street while at the same time reminding us of the history of Peterhead and some of the characters within it.
“My congratulations go to all those involved both on stage and behind the scenes for a very enjoyable evening.”
