25 LIVE: The Big Birthday Show

with hosts Jamie Macdougall and Saskia Ashdown

Celebrating 25 years of the Festival Theatre!

Showcasing the very best work made with our communities, partners and people. Premiering brand new works commissioned specifically for 25 Live.

Join us as the Festival Theatre turns 25! Hosted by Jamie MacDougall (BBC Radio Scotland) and Saskia Ashdown (BBC 3), this packed variety show of the very best of our creative people, projects and partnerships.

Dance Ihayami and WHALE Arts celebrate 50 years of Wester Hailes with a new dance piece. Scottish Opera brings Spinning Songs, an inter-generational song-writing project.

Capital Theatres presents a piece created from the Festival Theatre archive and a snapshot of our ground breaking dementia friendly work. Pilrig Park School joins Harmeny in working with our engagement artists to create two new unmissable pieces, and we will be celebrating recent collaborations, such as our short film with LGBT Youth Scotland and An Audience With… Janice Parker Projects.

Come and wish us a happy birthday, we can’t wait to share this with you!

This performance will have a quiet space and breakout spaces with a live feed throughout the show. For any access questions please contact us.

Capital Theatres aim to be accessible to all. We are committed to making your visit to our theatres as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. All of our Front of House staff undergo disability awareness training and Dementia Friend Training and will be pleased to assist you should you require any information or help.
