We will present the first results from the CLARA research facility at Daresbury Laboratory demonstrating terahertz-driven acceleration of a relativistic 35 MeV electron beam. A polarization-tailored, frequency-tunable, narrowband terahertz source was used to directly excite the longitudinal accelerating mode of a dielectric-lined waveguide structure for collinear phase-velocity-matched THz-electron interaction.
