The venues for the annual Orkney Blues Festival are very important to us, and are part of the fabric of the festival itself. Each year the festival may include other venues across Orkney and the islands, although the below venues are at the heart of the festival in Stromness.
As we take a break due to Covid-19, the festival is unable to take place in it's normal format - or indeed at the normal venues. In November 2021, events are taking place at The Stromness Academy Theatre which provides a spacious event area, with tables and seating on the floor, and balcony seating.
We look forward to planning a return to our usual weekend of blues festival in 2022, and look forward to sharing details of changes to venues and format as we take the opportunity to listen to feedback and improve the festival. And don't forget all of the national artists that have been waiting to visit - they're lining up!
