St Magnus Centre

The Centre maintains the historic link between Cathedral and the arts by providing space and encouragement for local musicians, writers and dramatists. Its spaces also can be used for small-scale exhibitions and events staged, for instance, by the St Magnus Festival and the Orkney Science Festival. Just as St Magnus Cathedral has an open door for all - whether they belong formally to the church or not - so the St Magnus Centre’s door is open to the community.
