We've followed venue closures last week with the decision to cancel all remaining events until the end of June 2020 as part of the effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19. The organisation’s international summer school, Shetland Folk Frenzy, due to run from 2 – 8 August, has also been cancelled.

We’re sad to cancel events planned for this spring and summer but given the current situation we have made this decision in partnership with our artists and promoters to safeguard all involved. We are continuing to teach our music and film courses online in partnership with Shetland College UHI and exploring ways to move other areas of our work online. In the meantime, we will be continuing to update our website, social media and YouTube channel with more great arts content to enjoy from your own home.

Any customers with tickets booked for events between 2 April and 30 June or Folk Frenzy packages will receive an automatic refund, customers who booked with cash and without an account please get in touch with Shetland Arts on

Stay home, stay creative and stay in touch,

Graeme Howell

Shetland Arts CEO
