The latest production at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen features the return of an old favourite, Mackie’s Ice Cream.

Locally-based at Westertown Farm in Rothienorman, the award-winning company previously supplied ice creams to the city theatre and are once again taking a starring role in interval treats due to popular demand.

Commenting on the move, Aberdeen Performing Arts front of house manager Nicola Eddie: “We encourage theatre-goers to let us know what they think of our venues through our feedback forms and there has been quite a clamour for the return of Mackie’s Ice Cream – so here it is!”

Mackie’s of Scotland National Account Manager Stuart Common said: “We are delighted to be coming home to HMT after a 15-year absence, we know it’s what audiences want and it’s certainly something we have been working towards for a long time now.

“Our late Chairman, Maitland Mackie, used to ask me ‘why can I not buy a Mackie’s when I go to the theatre?’, so he would have been thrilled to see our ice cream being sold at HMT again.”
