Firing imaginations by the sea - welcome to the UK's most northerly music, cinema and creative industries centre.

Mareel is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 10pm (or when the last film is coming out). View what's on here.

The Cafe Bar is open 10am to 9pm Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday (or when the last film of the evening goes in) and 10am to 11pm Friday and Saturday. Book tables here, and book for the study area here.

Sited right on the edge of the North Sea on the historic Hay’s Dock quayside in Lerwick beside the Shetland Museum and Archives, Mareel offers a stunning setting for performance, production, studying or just relaxing with a coffee enjoying the view and watching the seals and seabirds bobbing just outside the windows.
