Charity registered in Scotland SC037082
We have a volunteer Trustee Board which provides a strategic overview and governance. We are now on a journey to enable volunteers young and old to take an active part in shaping Shetland Arts at all levels of our work and organisation.
Mareel offers top quality facilities with a live performance auditorium which can be arranged for standing room, theatre seating, cabaret seating, or bespoke options. The two cinema screens show a varied programme of film, including event and arthouse cinema and Screen 2 is available for private hire. The venue also provides rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, education and training spaces, a state of the art digital media production suite, broadcast facilities, exhibition spaces and a cafe bar with a great menu and free high speed wi-fi internet access. BonhogaShop@Mareel offers a small but regularly changing collection of design-led goods, crafts, cards and books, an extension of the popular shop at Bonhoga Gallery in Weisdale. Gift vouchers are available, which can be used at any Shetland Arts venue (including for cinema).
The venue provides an exciting year round programme of film, live music, education and other performance events. It is a hub and a focus for the creative communities not just in Shetland but beyond, and a catalyst for the creative industry sector in Shetland.
