2.30pm - 4pm

New for 2024, Quantum presents a delightful new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s much-loved tale — The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck which will be performed in front of the castle on the sea facing side.

Prevented from hatching her eggs at the farm, foolish Jemima goes in search of a nesting place in the forest and soon she meets a charming ‘gentleman’ who offers her the perfect nesting place in his wood-shed.

But why is his wood-shed full of feathers and why is he asking her to collect the herbs for roast duck?

Back at the farm, the Collie-dog, Kep, puts two and two together, but will he be in time to rescue Jemima from her fate?


Please feel free to arrive from 2pm and bring a picnic, picnic blankets and outdoor chairs. Mimi’s café will also be open for light snacks. In event of light rain the performance will still go ahead but dress for the Scottish weather. If the weather is particularly bad, we may need to cancel.
