Pitlochry Festival Theatre Summer Season

A unique, theatrical phenomenon in the heart of Perthshire.

This Summer, this famous festival of theatre is once again producing and performing 6 excellent shows, all of which are played in daily rotation, which means you can see a different show every day, two on Wednesdays and Saturdays, as well as selected dates in September!

PFT is famous for large scale productions, delivered to international standards, with multitudes of sumptuous costumes, exquisitely detailed sets in a setting that is picture-postcard. It makes a perfect day or nights entertainment or as many of those who already attend, a superb short break. Many stay 6 days and see 6 plays. Or, how about 3 plays in 2 days, plus walking, golfing, shopping.

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