Our Experience

Borders Youth Theatre was established in 1989 as part of the first Borders Festival. Since then, we have organised many performance projects, often in collaboration with other organisations such as Schools, Youth Groups, Scottish Borders Health Board etc...


Did you know that you might be able to get help with fees? We try to make our activities available to everyone and will help if we can.

Drama Classes

Borders Youth Theatre runs junior and senior weekly workshops in five towns across the Borders during school term times.
