Perthshire District Raises Money for Macmillan with Panto

LISTEN: Ewan Lambie explains why the young farmers are putting on the show

The Perthshire District Young Farmers are back again with another panto – oh yes, they are – to raise money for Macmillan.

This year they’re putting on a performance of the Snow Queen, which is filled with fun, dance and song.

Ewan Lambie, one of this year’s dame’s, explained: “It’s something the young farmers do every two years. A group of members from throughout the district come together.

“So, there’s four different clubs in the district, and we all come together and put on a pantomime on the district’s behalf. And we all having a good laugh.

“It’s a lot of commitment what while we do it, but it’s good fun.”

They’ll be performing the Snow Queen at Birnam Arts across three nights, Thursday 9, Friday 10 and Saturday 11 December. Each starting at 7pm.

And the remaining funds from putting together the show are going toward Macmillan in the area.

Ewan said: “So, it’s always good to give back to the community so obviously people are paying for us to put on a show.

“And there’s quite a lot of cost involved with it, but we do make me a bit of money. So, it’s good to give that back to charity. So, this year it’s going to Cornhill Macmillan hospice in Perth.”

Ewan’s going to be trading in his farmer wellies for ladies wear each night as he sings, dances and performs as the panto dame all in the name of good fun and charity.

He added: “So, I’m the dame this year in the Pantomime. I’m not going to give anymore away as to what it is, but if anybody’s interested, they can come along and see it on the night.”
