Under Canvas, our outdoor summer festival co-curated with Fèis Rois, is back! From 1 July – 30 September 2021 we are presenting three months of live music, performance and DJ sets on our lawn. Welcome!

Our summer festival, Under Canvas, takes place on the Eden Court lawns next to the beautiful banks of the River Ness.

Co-curated with Fèis Rois, this family-friendly event features live music sessions, performance and DJ sets, and a bar serving a selection of delicious pizzas from our outdoor wood-fired pizza oven, as well as local beers, gins and whisky.

Special events and activities for children, young people and families will take place from 1 July – 30 September each week from Wednesday – Sunday.

Now in its third year, Under Canvas has been beautifully redesigned to maintain the spirit of socialising and shared enthusiasm for the arts, whilst following recommended government guidance for COVID-19.

All events in July and August are listed below and can be booked now. We are adding the finishing touches to our September programme, which will be online very soon.
