Lyth Arts Centre

Arts Centres

Lyth, Wick, Caithness, KW1 4UD

    During July and August each year the centre presents Six Simultaneous Exhibitions of Painting, Craft & Photography and also stages some evening concerts in the foyer.


    Lyth Arts Centre, deep in the Caithness countryside, is housed in a beautiful old building surrounded by trees and ancient stone walls. From the outside it retains the character of a Victorian village school but the interior has been imaginatively converted to a dynamic multi-purpose arts centre.

    Most of the programme is devoted to presenting the work of professional British and international artists and performers and the centre also acts as a stepping-off point for local artistic activity. The main aim is to promote work of the highest standard.

    A year-round programme of Live Performances presents the best work of small-scale touring companies - often innovative and experimental.  This includes drama, dance, jazz, folk, world, and new music.
