“One word – fabulous!” NFYT participant 2014

NFYT is the National Festival of Youth Theatre, the UK’s largest annual gathering of youth theatres.

This exciting annual event is the only opportunity for Scotland’s youth theatre participants to come together, discover a shared passion and develop as artists, audience members and creative thinkers. With an emphasis on inclusion, education and collaboration, NFYT aims to remove barriers, teach valuable life skills and provide extraordinary new experiences.

Every year the festival welcomes around 250 young participants aged 14+ representing up to 15 different youth theatres from across Scotland and overseas.

NFYT is produced by Youth Theatre Arts Scotland – Scotland’s development organisation for youth theatre arts – in partnership with Fife Cultural Trust.
