Festive Firsts 2019 - National Theatre of Scotland


The National Theatre of Scotland is inviting businesses across Scotland to support their Festive Firsts campaign.  Rather than spend money on printing and posting Christmas cards, companies can instead make a donation to Festive Firsts, which offers a group of young people who have never had the opportunity a first-in-a-lifetime experience of live theatre.

In return, the business receives a personalised digital card and social media badges to send to and share with their clients, suppliers and contacts, letting them know that they’re supporting the campaign.  They also receive an invitation to a Festive Firsts reception at Rockvilla, National Theatre of Scotland’s creation centre, to find out more about the work and experiences created for young people 

Since 2011, Festive Firsts has provided inspirational experiences for over 4,000 young people who otherwise would not have had the chance - because of how much money they have, where they live or because their life situation hasn’t allowed them to take part.

Participants receive:

  • A bespoke National Theatre of Scotland workshop, where they learn about the production they are about to see – what it’s about, how it was made, the issues involved. 
  • Alternative care provision for young people with family caring responsibilities
  • Return transport from their home to the venue
  • Packed lunch provided
  • A wraparound guided experience around the chosen performance, including:
    • a ticket for the show
    • a printed programme
    • an interval drink
    • the opportunity to meet members of the cast and the creative team after the show
