WITCHES, cauldrons, murder, tyranny and madness came to Abbotskerswell Primary School with an ambitious project based on Shakespeare’s ‘Scottish play’.

Children in Year 6 have been working on the story of Macbeth with a professional theatre company and the final results will be shown next week.

Partly funded by the local arts charity The Helen Foundation, the project involved Moretonhampstead-based MED Theatre Company.
