Welcome to the Erin Arts Centre.

We are an internationally recognised arts centre in the lovely seaside resort of Port Erin in the Isle of Man. The little island nestles in the middle of the Irish Sea in the centre of the British Isles. As a registered charity, the Erin Arts Centre is a non-profit arts centre dedicated to presenting performing, vocal and visual art for the benefit of the Island community. Known for its groundbreaking music and opera programmes and its international competitions, the EAC is acknowledged to be one of the leading arts centres in the British Isles.

The Mananan Festival has started and continues with events every day until 1st July. This picture of all the artistes appearing appeared on the cover of Manx Tails, a local free magazine sent to all households on the Isle of Man. Click the picture for a full list of events.

The Festival got under way with Lady Gozney unveiling a plaque and opening the new extension to the Arts Centre. She and her husband, the Island's Lieutenant-Governor Sir Richard Gozney, then attended a superb sold out concert given by international guitarist Craig Ogden. After being booked to appear in the Festival and knowing he would be on the Island, the Hallé Orchestra asked him to join him in their concert last weekend.
