That this House congratulates Bard in the Botanics, Glasgow’s annual outdoor Shakespeare festival, which marks its 20th anniversary in 2021; notes since their first festival they have staged more than 100 productions of Shakespeare’s work to audiences totalling in excess of 150,000 within Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens; further notes some of the Bard in the Botanics most popular performances have revived physical performances of Shakespeare’s work leading to productions touring across Scotland; recognises the dedication of Gordon Barr, the company’s Artistic Director, and the rest of the casts and production teams in creating fantastic performances over the past two decades which have been much missed in the city over the course of the last year; and wishes the company well as it hopes to return to live performances with the “Lost & Found” Season in the Botanic Gardens this summer.
