The St Magnus International Festival is Orkney's annual celebration of the arts, held around the islands at midsummer.

Set in Orkney's incredible landscape in the light nights of midsummer, the Festival carves out a beautiful and distinct shape in the UK's festivals landscape.

A multi-artform programme held across the islands, the Festival has been at the heart of Orkney's cultural life in the final weeks of June since 1977, featuring performances including music, theatre, arts, dance, literature, cabaret and folk music alongside community projects, education and learning opportunities.

Tickets usually go on sale in April. Keep up-to-date with all the latest plans and programme information on the official St Magnus International Festival website.
