Stromness Shopping Week 2020

The towns legendary gala week is a fantastic showcase of our community spirit with plenty of fun and games. Regular favourites include the Holms Swim, three legged fancy dress and the Shopping Week 10k race. Music plays a big part during the week too with regular performances from the Stromness Royal British Legion Pipe Band and live bands playing at the pierhead and in the pubs. The week closes with a fabulous fancy dress parade through the town, an open air dance and some jazzy fireworks. We'll of course be serving food and drink all week as well as helping out with various events. Head to the Stromness Shopping Week Facebook page for updates on this years programme.

Orkney Blues Festival 2020

Now entering it's 15th year, The Orkney Blues Festival showcases a selection of local and national talent providing a blistering weekend of Blues music. The festival is operated entirely by volunteers with all funds used to provide bigger and better events as well as to attract well-known and talented artists to Orkney. We are very proud to once again provide sponsorship along with our fellow Stromness businesses. We'll have three bars open and, weather provided, our famous Blues BBQ on the upstairs patio. Table space is at a premium during the festival so if you're looking to eat with us make sure you book a table to avoid missing out! For lineup and programme announcements check out the festival's website linked below.
