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 seven month programme of Live Performances runs from April to October each year. It presents the best work of small-scale touring companies - often innovative and experimental. This includes drama, jazz, folk, classical, world, and new music.
