The Swallow Theatre is temporarily closed.

We are watching for confirmation from the Scottish Government as to when live performance events will be allowed to restart, and the capacity constraints that will apply.

We are currently working on tentative plans to re-open in summer 2021.

In the meantime we are working on improvements to the theatre building, the foyer/bar area and the performers’ accommodation.

We will be back and are really looking forward to the time when we can welcome performers and audiences here once again.

Please sign up for our email newsletters and be one of the first to know when shows restart. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @SwallowTheatre.

The Swallow Theatre Story

The Swallow Theatre is a 50-seat venue in rural Dumfries and Galloway, and is located about three miles from Whithorn (Scotland’s earliest Christian settlement and one of its very oldest towns) and ten miles from Wigtown (Scotland’s book town).

Creative Retreat

For creative companies and individuals who want to get away from it all and have focussed production development or rehearsal time. We can offer packages that include the use of the theatre, refreshment room (The Sumner Room) and the on-site self catering accommodation.

We can also offer production services including lighting design, sound design and photography.

We will be adding our technical facilities and venue information to the website in the near future. In the meantime please contact us using the button below.
