We're opening up the 2021 online Festival again on th 17th October to coincide with the 100th birthday of George Mackay Brown whose work was celebrated across this year's June Festival. If you missed it, or want to watch again, then you can buy tickets from 17th October to view any of our films. Our films received 5 star reviews and bring together performances in a range of venues and landscape mixing music with spoken word and providing a visual feast of Orkney itself. Our film of the play The Storm Watchers is also available, this won universal acclaim and is now being screened at other festivals in the UK. There's also a host of fiddle tunes inspired by Mackay Brown as well as readings of his poetry and a documentary film about the writer.
Since 1977, St Magnus International Festival has been at the heart of Orkney's cultural life in the final weeks of June. Each year we stage a variety of events in music, theatre, arts, dance, literature, cabaret and folk msuic alongside community projects, education and learning opportunities all of them set against the backdrop of Orkney's magical midsummer.
