Shetland Arts Launches New Monthly Guide
by Alastair Hamilton -
Keeping pace with events in Shetland has become easier, now that Shetland Arts" new guide has become available.
Shetland hosts a range of events that's remarkable for a community of just 22,000 people, so the new showcase for Mareel, the Garrison Theatre and the Bonhoga Gallery will be welcomed by many. It highlights, month by month, the variety of music, film, drama and visual art that's on offer in these venues. However, it also draws attention to other opportunities, for example the music courses up to degree level that are offered in conjunction with Shetland College, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands.
The first edition, in February, tempted patrons with attractions ranging from Dylan Moran's comedy to a relay of the National Theatre's production of The Crucible, not to mention screenings of the most-tipped Oscar nominations and all the regular events at Mareel, including the hugely popular monthly film quiz.
