How To Build Your Own Pitlochry Festival Tent Theatre!

And WIN FAMILY TICKETS to a show of your choice in 2021!

How To Build Your Own Theatre

As you, our wonderful visitors, are sadly unable to visit Pitlochry Festival Theatre right now, we’ve put together a brand new, fun-filled, illustrated booklet to help you create your very own amazing Pitlochry Festival Theatre tent in your home or garden, with everyday household items. All you need is your imagination! 

And if you want to, you can take pictures of your home-made stage, send them to us, and three selected, will WIN A FAMILY TICKET to your choice of show in 2021 (details below).

Here’s Elizabeth Newman, our Artistic Director, to tell you more:
How to build your won theatre Elizabeth illustrationWe’re all finding it so sad that we can’t welcome you, our wonderful audiences to the Theatre this summer, and very many of you are sending such lovely, but sad messages, saying how much you are missing coming to see us too. I wanted to find a way to make sure you could still visit us somehow… So I came up with the idea that you could build your own theatre at home.

“With some incredibly talented Pitlochry Festival Theatre artists – Barbara Hockaday, Adrian Rees and Trudy Rees-Marklew – we’ve created a fully illustrated guide of How to Build Your Own Theatre. Our Theatre originally started in a tent not a building, so we imagined it would be fun to build the original Festival Theatre. It also includes a story and songs for children and families of all ages to perform together, and how to make the props, costumes and set for the performance! We can’t wait to hear about how everyone’s got on..” 

Budding Theatre-makers can take pictures of their home-made stage, send them to us, or post them on the Theatre’s social media channels, and the three selected, will win a family ticket.

Simply download your free book below and get building… and playing. Have Fun!

Deadline for competition entries: Friday 7 August 2020.
