Can my dog come to the festival?

qq

While we love dogs, we unfortunately can’t welcome them to the festival. We must follow the policies of the organisations who run our venues, so dogs can’t come to events. As our events are noisy and busy, we also couldn’t guarantee dogs would have a good experience joining you.

Is there food and drink available at festival venues?

qq

We’d recommend checking the event information in our festival programme to see which venues offer food and drink. 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.

Do you have a Festival Club?

qq

Stromness Community Centre is home to our Lounge venue (formerly known as the Festival Club). It’s a seated, intimate, cabaret concert. If you’re looking for something a bit livelier, the Stomps are the place to be. They give you the chance to burn off some energy dancing while enjoying local and visiting acts.

Can I take photographs or film at venues?

qq

Flash photography and filming is prohibited. It’s also a distraction for 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?

qq

Most of our venues have step free access, unless otherwise marked in the programme. Stromness Town Hall has a small number of wheelchair user tickets in the seating plan. If you’re a wheelchair user going to other venues, please book a general admission ticket.
