Tickets go on sale at 8am on Friday 12 October for this year’s Shetland Arts’ Hogmanay event at Mareel, hosted by Peatbog Faeries, one of Scotlands best-known names in contemporary folk music!

Following on from the sell-out success of The Revellers in 2017 and Fiddlers Bid in 2016, Shetland Arts have teamed up with the Peatbog Faeries to produce a celebration of contemporary and traditional music like no other!

"Nothing prepares you for the high octane music of the Peatbog Faeries. Powerful melodies are dextrously pumped out with a smart degree of techno attitude, while cross-rhythms ricochet over a heavy bass that hits you forcefully like a massive heart beat.”

The night will begin with a traditional Shetland variety concert, opened by the Peatbog Faeries with performances by local bands and musicians, followed by supper and the chance to relax in one of the cinema screens, while the stage is re-set for the Peatbog Faeries to bring in the bells for Hogmanay 2018! Then it’s time to dance the night away with our mixology DJs and the Alan Nicholson Dance Band.

The event has again received support through Scotland’s Winter Festivals, a programme designed to celebrate the spirit and fun of Scotland’s winter season with a range of exciting events and activity throughout the country; celebrating heritage and culture through the best of Scottish music, arts, food and drink and entertainment.

Two separate tickets are available for the night, one for the variety concert for £30, and one for the Bells & Dance for £40. A combination package providing access to both elements is also available for £60 (£55 special early bird price on 12th/13th/14th October). Tickets are on sale from Friday 12th October.
