Everyone’s welcome at our Theatre for All

Accessibility is an important part of our ethos here at Pitlochry Festival Theatre.

We embody and encourage respect, empathy and integrity and, in every situation, we foster creativity, collaboration and inspiration.

As well as creating and presenting performances that delight, engage and challenge as wide an audience as possible, we work hard to make sure every one of them is accessible to everyone.

From specially designed and less formal performances to a comprehensive range of accessibility services and facilities (see below for more details), we’ve ensured that there are no barriers to enjoying events and becoming part of our Theatre community.


Seating Arrangements

We have 538 seats in our main auditorium, our most easily accessed seats from our foyer are those on rows F and G. Our closest seats to the toilets are F1 and G1.
