We are pleased to offer behind-the-scenes tours of our historic building, Scotland's Oldest Working Theatre established back in 1792; the theatre has links to many famous historic figures including the likes of Robert Burns, J.M. Barrie, John Laurie and a number of notable Scottish actors. 

The Guild of Players Theatre Royal Dumfries is now looking to work with a freelancer to develop the field of heritage research and archiving and overseeing our Theatre Heritage Tours project and we can't wait to learn more exciting information about the history of our wonderful building. 

As we celebrate our 230th anniversary in September this year, we can't wait to see what the researcher will discover during the course of the project and we look forward to sharing new tours with you later this year. 

If you would like to book one of our tours, please contact
