Last night saw over 300 guests attend our 2017 Festivals Reception, held at Dynamic Earth in partnership with ITC and supported by Theatre Tokens. The event was attended by FST members, ITC members and those working across theatre, dance and opera in Scotland and beyond.
Guests were welcomed by FST’s Director Jude Henderson, who then introduced Jackie Wylie, recently appointed Director of the National Theatre of Scotland. In her first public address since taking on her new post, Jackie spoke about the importance of Festivals, arts and culture and how they allow us to come together and make sense of what’s happening in the world as well as taking a moment to acknowledge the role played by the dedicated arts journalists working in Scotland. Following Jackie’s speech Charlotte Jones, Chief Executive of ITC, added her welcome and thanks.
Thanks to everyone who came along and helped make the event a success.
