    Been trying for almost 7 months to see this little Theatre in Aberdeenshire, on probably the 10th visit here, the door was open. The Theatre is part of Blairs College / Seminary and has sat unused since the late 80's and surprisingly there is quite a lot of items left inside.

    Luckily the theatre has been fairly well sealed, protecting it from the elements, however on this visit it was mighty cold inside! From the outside the building does not look very promising, but the treasure lies within! For being such a small theatre there is a real sense of drama inside. The architecture inside is not of a grandeur style, a simplistic style with the red cloth seats and domed ceiling give it a excellent setting to explore!

    It was re-modelled in 1827 by John Gall, under the supervision of Rev Gordon and John Menzies. John Menzies was a very wealthy Catholic Laird who gifted the land for the college construction. The Older Seminary is situated behind the very impressive new college which is partly used as a museum.
