FESTIVAL 2021 18 - 23 JUNE

 

Having had to cancel the 2020 event because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, St Magnus International Festival has worked hard to be able to present performances in June of 2021. The Festival will offer a mixed programme of work online with the hope that some planned ‘live’ outdoor events will be able to go ahead over the Festival dates of 18th- 23rd June.

2021 will reflect Orkney, its landscape, seascape, heritage and history whilst bringing the usual, high quality blend of performers together.  Performances will be filmed in venues across Orkney during May and June in accordance with Scottish Government Covid Guidelines and be shared at midsummer online via the Festival website.

A series of outdoor ‘live’ events are planned for the festival period, but these are dependent on how much the lockdown has eased and the prevailing guidelines and restrictions put in place by the Scottish Government.  Details of these open air ‘live’ events will be announced as soon as regulations permit these to go ahead.   The Festival will be carrying out all of its work in preparation for this year’s event, from filming to ‘live’, with every precaution taken and every risk assessed.

This will be the postponed 44th Festival which hopes to add its unique magic and innovative programming to the recovery of Arts and Culture events in Scotland.
