Live music, books and comedy will all form part of Lyth Arts Centre’s (LAC) 2020 season.
The first event will be a one-off performance by Shooglenifty, part of a series of special gigs to mark the band’s 30th birthday.
The season continues into March with film, music, dance, theatre and family shows including a special archive film event to mark International Women’s Day on Sunday 8th March and ‘Space Ape’ – a show for children being held as part of Caithness International Science Festival.
Irish choreographer Rob Heaslip will present The Endling, while Rant will use their fiddles to weave a tapestry of melodies.
Classical music fans can enjoy Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble Red Note at the end of the month.
The Easter holidays will bring plenty of activities for kids and there will be two weekend festivals in April, including a special thriller film weekend.
The John O’Groats Book Festival returns on April 25 and 26, while in May there will be theatre and comedy, with performances by Shetland comic Marjolein Robertson and the Black Isle’s Colin Bramwell, with his show ‘Umbrella Man’.
LAC co-director Tom Barnes will present his hit show ‘Ventoux’ as part of his company 2 Magpies Theatre’s first Scotland-wide tour.
Tom said: “It’s definitely a year to celebrate the local and we’re proud to be partnering with village halls, artists and organisations from across the county and the wider Highlands.
“There really is something for everyone this season.’
