Explore, discover and learn about the history of The Byre Theatre!

The original Byre Theatre was founded in 1933 by the actor Charles Marford and Alexander B Paterson, a local journalist and playwright. The current building (the third to have that name) was designed by award-winning architects Nicoll Russell Studios of Broughty Ferry and opened by Sean Connery in 2001.
