Scheme Profile



Promoting high quality and professionally produced theatre, dance and film productions in rural communities across the North East of Scotland.

Formed in 1985, we aim to bring the very best talent and entertainment to the north-east of Scotland; something for everyone, no matter your age, taste or background.

Our mission is to develop and support a thriving network of voluntary promoters, enabling them to support high-quality professional theatre and dance performances and community cinema screenings in rural venues.

Our ethos is completely audience-focused and our promoters fully understand the make-up of their communities. A recent survey confirms our satisfied customer base and our audiences recognise NEAT as excellent value for money.
