Colin Liddell: A jaunt through the first 70 years of Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Winter Words Festival 2023

Friday 10 February

11am – 12pm

 

Colin Liddell, former Trustee and Chair of Pitlochry Festival Theatre and now its Honorary President, talks about the Theatre’s history from being a dream scribbled on a piece of paper during the turbulent times of the Second World War, to becoming the thriving centre of artistic excellence it is today.

The Theatre’s history has had its ups and downs but through the vision of John Stewart and the support of a dedicated group of enthusiasts, it has grown from staging performances in a tent to becoming a cultural destination for theatregoers from Scotland and abroad.

We are thrilled to share our 19th Winter Words Festival, featuring an exciting lineup of well-known, and well-loved authors, playwrights, poets, adventurers, broadcasters, and TV personalities from around Scotland and further afield for a celebration of all things artistic and literary.

This is just one of the many events on offer. If you’re interested in more, why not buy our Winter Words Multibuy Package*, where you can access four fantastic talks for the price of three!  Just add your events to the basket, and we will discount before you pay.

*Makings of a Murderer and Banff Film Festival is not included in the Multibuy package.
