The largest annual gathering of youth theatres in the UK.
“One word – fabulous!” NFYT participant 2014
Each year around 200 young people aged 14+ come together to discover and celebrate their shared passion. Participants come from youth theatre groups all across Scotland, the UK and internationally.
Through performances, workshops, social activities and festival camping NFYT encourages its young participants to develop as artists, audience members and creative thinkers. With an emphasis on inclusion, education and collaboration, NFYT removes barriers, teaches valuable life skills and provides extraordinary new experiences.
NFYT is moving for the first time in six years and bringing its inspiring programme to Ayr Gaiety, Rozelle Park and numerous venues across the town.
