“One word – fabulous!” NFYT participant 2014

Each year Scotland’s National Festival of Youth Theatre (NFYT) creates an explosion of young creative talent. It is the largest gathering of youth theatres in the UK and enables young people to come together, discover and celebrate a shared passion, offering them the opportunity to develop as artists, audience members and creative thinkers.

In 2015 the festival welcomed youth theatre groups from across Scotland and further afield. The event included six programmed shows, two scratch performances and a special short performance created by the Fife schools NFYT outreach project. The weekend also included an evening open-mic performance café, artistic workshops, a final night ceilidh and of course, festival camping!
