Pantomime in Scotland

Pantomime in Scotland

Beginning in October 2007 Pantomime in Scotland: ‘Your other national theatre’ is a three-year research project, funded by the (AHRC) that explores and celebrates all aspects of pantomime in Scotland.

The Pantomime in Scotland project is an opportunity to explore, document and enjoy one of Scotland’s great popular art forms. Recognising this, the project is both an academic investigation and a celebration of Scottish pantomime, its history, its current arrangements and impacts. Part of the project's work is a nationally-organised oral history project to record people of all ages’ memories of going to see – and appearing in – pantomimes.

So far the project has produced a touring exhibition, a national census of pantomime activity in Scotland in 2008/2009, and an economic impact study, which assesses pantomime’s contribution to both Scottish theatre and the wider economy.
