A D V E R T O R I A L We’re helping to bring the National Theatre of Scotland to local communities.

This year, Bank of Scotland and the National Theatre of Scotland entered into an exciting two year partnership, working together to bring world-class theatre to communities large and small across Scotland.

Bank of Scotland’s investment has and will continue to enable National Theatre of Scotland to develop its programme and to take it to audiences across the country. It is estimated, that in this first year alone, nearly 100,000 people will have come into contact with a production or initiative under the Bank of Scotland Pioneering Partnership banner.

This year the Bank of Scotland Pioneering Partnership has included the support of productions, initiatives and workshops, such as First Nights, a ground-breaking scheme to

introduce young people with no experience of the arts to theatre. To celebrate the partnership Bank of Scotland has hundreds of tickets to give away to the National Theatre of Scotland’s current tour which will see two exciting new productions, Calum’s Road and Tall Tales for Small People, visiting communities from Glasgow to Raasay and Oban to Drumnadrochit, to name but a few.

We also have tickets to give away for the touring production of Men Should Weep in a number of locations across the country.

We are teaming up with The List to offer readers the chance to win one of 5 pairs of tickets to Men Should Weep on 9 November at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh.

Men Should Weep Set amid the grinding poverty of Glasgow’s tenements in the 1930s, the play follows the misfortunes of a working class family trying to do the best in the worst of circumstances.
