After dark special

The nights are fair drawing in. Luckily, Shetland abounds with opportunities to get involved in creative projects and make the most of these long dark evenings.

Our October celebrates all that nocturnal Shetland has to offer: from pub life to night classes.  Alex Garrick-Wright meets with Isleburgh Drama Group and Frankie Valente draws on an inspirational friend for some winter project ideas.

Draw the curtains, light the fire and enjoy!


A peek behind the scenes

You know that spring has well and truly sprung when it’s time for the Shetland County Drama Festival.
Drama groups have been working hard all over winter to provide us with four consecutive nights of excellent entertainment.

Debra Nicolson is in three plays at this year’s festival. Make sure you read her article in this month’s Shetland Life for an interesting insight into the rehearsal process.

And don’t forget to go along and enjoy the spectacle at the Garrison Theatre! This year’s drama festival runs from Monday the 6th to Thursday the 9th March.
