The Swallow Theatre is a restored and converted byre at Moss Park, Ravenstone. It 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).
Over the years the number of productions presented at the Theatre has grown. We try to provide a wide range of events — drama (including original work), music (classical, folk and jazz), poetry and play readings, and ‘theme nights’.
Several well-known musicians, actors and music groups have visited the theatre. The theatre delights in the contribution made by its members and audience, and we hope to revive the tradition of producing ‘home-grown’ events such as a pantomime or a Christmas play, and plays especially written for the small space at ‘The Swallow’. We also aim to produce one professional play in-house each season going into the future. Because the theatre is small and intimate, visitors often comment on the ‘unique atmosphere’.
