1951-theatre-openingThe ‘Theatre in the Hills' has an international reputation for the high quality and scale of its productions, drawing over 100,000 visitors from through the UK and abroad every year to enjoy a unique repertoire system which allows visitors to see a different show every night of the week - two on matinée days!

 

Pitlochry Festival Theatre was established in 1951 and originally housed in a tent, it now occupies a beautiful building in a magnificent setting on the banks of the Tummel River, surrounded by the spectacular hills and mountains of Highland Perthshire.

 

"It’s a unique phenomenon, no other British theatre attempts this extraordinary turnover of plays"
Scotland On Sunday

"What Pitlochry proves is that theatre can be popular and good… a comment not just on the play, but on the infectious nature of the pleasure principle which permeates the whole Pitlochry Festival."
The Guardian

"A joyful and life-enhancing asset to Scottish theatre...And it's safe to say that there is no other theatre in Scotland, now, remotely as well equipped as Pitlochry to present My Fair Lady, or any show like it."
The Scotsman

Discover our history "When staying in Pitlochry during the early part of the war, I chanced to see a stately house with a fairly large garden, quite close to the town.
