Borders Youth Theatre (BYT) welcomes school age children to its weekly workshops during school term across the Borders. These workshops are designed to introduce children and young adults to theatrical skills across the board. Each workshop puts on its own production once a year. In addition, a central Summer Project is run for all comers in the school holidays, with smaller productions taking place in the other school holidays as appropriate. BYT actively encourages its members to work with other youth theatres and regularly travels to events and performances, including taking part in the National Theatre Connections Festival.
