Inverness Festive Season 2021

As the nights draw in and the air turns cool, our thoughts turn towards the sparkling festive season. We love Christmas time here at The Kingsmills. So today, we’re sharing some of the best things to do in Inverness at this most wonderful time of year.

Eden Court Panto

10th December 2021 – 8th January 2022

What’s a festive countdown without mentioning the annual Christmas pantomime? Once again, the biggest theatrical festival of the year will be returning to the Highlands this festive season. So if you are spending this Christmas in Inverness, head on down to see Cinderella at Eden Court Theatre. In true family panto style, enjoy the dastardly villain, hapless comic, hilarious damsel in distress, fabulous songs, outrageous costumes and loads and loads of slapstick fun!
