Resulting from a national architectural competition, Mareel is the UKs most northerly cinema and music venue. This high quality and inclusive arts and cultural facility provides much needed performance and recording spaces. The new venue also includes facilities for education programmes and acts showcasing shetlands music, film and other related industries on an international stage.
The new venue is located to the north of Lerwick town centre on the edge of the historic Hays Dock, overlooking the Bressay sound. Mareel is a key catalyst to the regeneration of this waterfront edge of the town.
