Join us in Mareel for some traditional soup and bannocks to explore the music, heritage and landscapes of our beautiful islands through film.

Our specially commissioned double feature will take you on a journey through the history of Shetland music in Sounds of Shetland, followed by a glimpse into everyday life in Shetland through rarely seen archive footage in Shetland through the Years.

The short films were made locally, featuring the music of Hjaltibonhoga, Shetland’s fiddlers of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and unique archive footage from the Shetland Film Archive.

Hjaltibonhoga means ‘Shetland, my spiritual home’. Hjaltibonhoga encourage and promote traditional Shetland music, ensuring these cultural identities are shared internationally and passing on skills and traditions across the generations. The Shetland Film Archive is a volunteer-led charitable organisation which aims to collect, digitise and preserve moving image material relating to Shetland, for future generations to learn from and enjoy.

This film is unclassified, we would recommend it as a PG - suitable for general viewing, but parents should use their judgement on whether it is appropriate for young children. 

Running time 40min. Pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment, 10% discount for groups of ten or more.
