Mareel is the UK's most northerly music, cinema and creative industries centre, operated by Shetland Arts Development Agency.
Situated in a prominent quayside area in Lerwick next to the Shetland Museum and Archives, Mareel has a live performance auditorium, two cinema screens, rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, education and training spaces, a digital media production suite, broadcast facilities and a cafe bar with free high speed wi-fi internet access.
Mareel provides a year round programme of film, live music, education and other performance events. It is a hub and a focus for the creative communities not just in Shetland but beyond, and a catalyst for the creative industry sector in Shetland.
Drawing upon its very special remote, yet well connected location, live acts not only get to experience the inspiring seascapes and landscapes of Shetland but also get to enjoy the world-renowned hospitality of Shetland people.
