Horror classic comes to Glamis Castle

Glamis Castle is hosting a one-man show adapted from Bram Stoker’s famous novel, ‘Dracula’. From Victorian era theatre company, Don’t Go Into the Cellar, the unique show will be performed by the group’s Artistic Director Jonathan Goodwin on Saturday, October 1.

Jonathan will play a host of characters from the Gothic story, which celebrates its 125th anniversary this year, including Sir Henry Irving, the famous actor on whom Stoker is believed to have based the phyiscal description of the character of Dracula.

The one-hour show will be performed deep within the castle in the Drawing Room – all adding to the atmosphere for the audience.

As Autumn begins to fall and the nights are getting darker, the team at Glamis are looking forward to beginning the Hallowe’en-themed activities at the historic venue.

Steven Cumming, general manager, said: “After a busy summer where we hosted many outdoor events, we are thrilled to be able to welcome visitors for a spooky and truly unique experience to mark the beginning of our Hallowe’en season. Don’t Go Into the Cellar know how to put on a great show and the audience are going to be in for a treat when they meet Dracula here on October 1.”
