We love a good festival in Orkney.

It’s a chance for the community to come together, and also to welcome visitors from around the world.

Our busy annual programme includes the prestigious St Magnus International Festival – Orkney’s midsummer celebration of the arts – and the hugely popular folk, science and storytelling festivals.

There are also events covering everything from blues music to North Ronaldsay’s famous seaweed-eating sheep.
