From Aberdeen’s iconic Beach Ballroom, to His Majesty’s Theatre and the Music Hall, AIYF takes performances to a range of venues in the city. As well as a number of churches, the festival also stages shows at community centres and smaller studio venues. The Extended Festival programme is a unique opportunity for audiences living in rural areas to experience the festival on their doorstep. From village halls, community venues and chapels, international groups can be found performing across Aberdeenshire, Angus and Moray. As well as the benefit to the local people, this offers the international participants a chance to explore Scotland’s impressive natural heritage outside the city.
