Get into the Christmas spirit with The Barony Players’ annual Christmas Concert. Written and directed by Tom Keeble, this concert will perform a range of popular and iconic musical numbers, alongside a few family Christmas Carol favourites.
The Barony Theatre is honoured to once again be hosting the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival 2019 in their first film showing, The Hound of The Baskervilles.
With an introduction from Barry Young, The Scotland Yard Jack-in-Office of the Sherlock Holmes Society of Scotland.
Plus a short live performance of scenes from Ken Ludwig’s murderously funny Holmes-inspired play The Game’s Afoot presented by our hosts the Barony Players.
The world’s most popular detective brought thrillingly to life in this most famous of all Conan Doyle’s stories, now restored and given its UK premiere at HippFest. An atmosphere of Saturday matinee entertainment runs throughout, with secret passages, spooky suits of armour, and a dastardly villain creeping about the shadowy ancestral Baskerville home and foggy moors. This, the last Sherlock Holmes film of the silent era, has itself been the subject of mystery and intrigue, the nitrate original being stored (some say hidden) in a Polish priest’s basement for decades.
In this enjoyable incarnation Holmes bears some of the hallmarks we have come to expect: arrogance, a deerstalker hat and a disdainful but fond relationship with his Watson.

We are delighted to have been chosen for Tesco’s Bags of Help!
If successful we will be able to improve our spaces for all by installing black curtains around the stage which will make it more flexible for community use. We will also help create level access into the building with a new portable wheelchair ramp.
We would be so grateful if anyone shopping at Tesco in Bo’ness in the coming weeks would vote for our great cause – we would love to be able to make the improvements to the theatre so that more local people can come and enjoy this wonderful community asset.
Always forgetting your bags? Great! Just remember to ask for a token at the checkout.
