The Jamaica Youth Theatre joined over 1,000 other young performing artistes from 15 countries across the world for the Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF) 2017 earlier this month.  

The Festival was staged in Aberdeen and the North-East region of Scotland under the auspices of the council of the City of Aberdeen.
