Perth Theatre recently took on a three year transformation project, reopening its doors to the public on Monday 13 November 2017 after its £16.6m transformation.
Funding for the £16.6m project was pledged from project partners Perth & Kinross Council, Creative Scotland, The Gannochy Trust, the Heritage Lottery Fund, other trusts and foundations, individual donations and other supporters and funding bodies.
Slap bang in the middle of Perth, who would expect to find one of Scotland’s oldest theatres at over 118 years old? The theatre as it stands today opened on Perth High Street in 1900 and at the time it boasted an 800-seat auditorium. When it opened the interior was described as ‘one of the finest in Scotland’.
