Stornoway Port Authority wish to celebrate the formal opening of the new Newton Marina with a four-day marine festival - Steornabhagh air a’ Chuan.
The Steòrnabhagh air a’ Chuan festival will see visitors and the community invited to celebrate the opening of Stornoway’s new marina with sailing events, workshops, races, ceilidhs and the promotion of local produce; whilst also creating interpretation of nature, culture and history will be shared.
Steòrnabhagh air a’ Chuan will celebrate the regeneration of the harbour by stimulating activity both on and around the water. The four-day event will be a truly vibrant Hebridean cultural experience - exploring the nature, music, food and people that are, and have been, most important to our coastal region.
There will be a thematic programme running through and beyond the festival, these will be shared across schools, arts, heritage and community hubs throughout the islands. Young people will be at the heart of many of the performances and it promises to be a fantastic showcase of the wealth of talent we have in our islands.
