Three full houses in Helensburgh have enjoyed the dramatic talents of local school pupils as they put on a performance of one of Shakespeare's best-known plays.

Lomond School pupils put on the production of A Midsummer Night's Dream from January 26-28, showing off the dedication of their drama department.

The timeless tale of love, magic and mischief was brought to life with 22 pupils transporting their audiences into the classic Shakespearean comedy.

Dr Natalie Roncone, drama teacher at the school, said: “I am incredibly proud of our actors and their dedication to bringing A Midsummer Night's Dream to life.
