Shetland Arts has announced the temporary closure of Mareel from 26th December as Shetland moves into level three of the Covid restrictions, which includes the suspension of cinema and live events. Bonhoga Gallery and the Garrison Theatre would usually be closed over this festive period and the organisation plans to re-open their venues as soon as public health guidance allows.  

In the meantime, Shetland Arts is continuing their popular online arts programme with Shetland Youth Theatre, Film Crew Jnr and Snr, Mindful Makkin, Wellbeing Choir and Jenny Sturgeon’s Unlocking Our Sound Heritage workshops all coming up in January.

All cancelled cinema bookings are being automatically refunded, if you have any questions please contact Shetland Arts on [email protected] or phone the Mareel box office on Wednesday and Thursday this week on 01595 745500.
