Is there food and drink available at festival venues?
We’d recommend checking the event key in our festival programme to see which venues offer food and drink, as this varies over the course of the weekend. Some of our venues have a bar and if food’s available it’s more likely to be a snack than a full meal.
Where are the main festival venues?
Our three busiest venues are in Stromness at the Town Hall, Academy and Community Centre. Aside from these three, events taking place in local community centres or halls across Orkney vary every year.
Do you have a Festival Club?
Yes, Stromness Community Centre is home to our Festival Club offering a fully seated, intimate, cabaret concert. If you’re looking for something a bit livelier, The Stomps are the place to be, giving you the chance to burn off some energy while enjoying local and visiting acts.
Can I take photographs or film at venues?
Flash photography and filming is strictly prohibited, as well as being a distraction for performing artists and fellow audience members. Please keep your phones and cameras away so everyone can enjoy the event.
Is there disabled access at festival venues?
Most of our venues have step free access, unless otherwise marked in the programme. Venues which have a seating plan, like Stromness Town Hall, have a small number of wheelchair tickets available in our online sale. If you’re a wheelchair user attending an event with unreserved tickets, please book a general admission ticket.
