Here behind the scenes at Shetland Arts it is always busy, supporting and developing local artists, programming and running events and films both in Lerwick and out in the community. Sometimes, however, it gets busier than others! At the time of writing we are about to welcome visitors from as far afield as the United States and Australia to Folk Frenzy and are getting the programme ready for Screenplay, as well as all our usual day to day activities...to give you a glimpse into these we have picked a busy summer Saturday to show you…

On Saturday 20 July…

In the cinema at Mareel we’re showing The Queen’s Corgi’s (PG), Yesterday (12A), Support the Girls (15), Apollo 11 (U) and Child’s Play (15)…

We have FELT contemporary dance workshops and performance by internationally renowned choreographer Elizabeth Schilling in the Mareel Auditorium and in Lerwick Methodist Church…

These Favourite Things exhibition is in the Mareel Upper Café Bar…

Meanwhile at Bonhoga we have the opening of the third ShetlandMade contemporary local craft exhibition of the year in the Upper Gallery, alongside Paul Bloomer’s Expressive Landscape Drawing Creative Lab workshop out in the landscape around the gallery if the weather holds (cosying up in the café if it doesn’t)…

Our ShetlandMade retail outlet is open as usual at Sumburgh airport terminal, showcasing the work of 16 local artists and makers…

At the Garrison Theatre we welcome Scottish Ballet with two performances of Wee Hansel and Gretel…

And in case that wasn’t enough on the same day we’re also bringing storytelling performance Space Ape to Haroldswick Hall for Unst Fest!
