Workshops give you and your students the opportunity to work with a member of the Traverse Team to find out more about our work through a practical and engaging workshop.

We can also create bespoke workshops for schools and teachers.

In our Traverse 2 performance space, a technician is up a ladder rigging lights.

Backstage Tours

Go behind the scenes with a member of the Traverse team and get exclusive access to the unseen areas of Scotland's new writing theatre. Our Backstage Tours cover the history of the Traverse as well as visits to our Green Room, Wardrobe, Dressing Rooms, Workshop and two theatre spaces, Traverse 1 and Traverse 2.

Tours are free of charge for educational groups and can accommodate up to 20 people. Tours must be arranged in advance and are subject to our production programme.
