Festive Firsts

Every December, we invite businesses and individuals to donate to Festive Firsts, all the proceeds from which support the First Nights programme.

First Nights was initially set up to creative first-in-a-lifetime theatre experiences for young people who have never had the opportunity to engage with live performance – due to their financial situation, family background or a variety of other circumstances. In 2018 we extended the First Nights programme to isolated older people in communities across Scotland.

In return for a donation, we create a beautifully designed e-card and social media badges, personalised for you or your company.  Rather than buying and posting Christmas cards, you can share these digitally with all your contacts, letting them know that you’ve helped to give a first-in-a-lifetime experience for young and older people across Scotland.
