Uganda National Theatre and Cultural Centre was established in 1959 and has been acting vigorously to promote and conserve the traditional performing art in Uganda. It also enhances the modern art activities through providing services in both theatre and audio-studio, training the youth groups and organizing national festivals. In 1991 the National Theatre received lightning and audio equipment for the main theatre, and in 2002 it received audio-visual equipment for both the theatre and the audio-studio through the Cultural Grant Aid from the Japanese Government. Through this project, the equipment donated by the Japanese Government has been repaired to further support the traditional and modern performance art activities in Uganda.
