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 2018 Mananan Festival was very successful. Audience numbers surpassed previous years as we had 3 events completely sold out and 3 events with less than 6 seats available. The line up for next years Mananan Festival can be seen on our Mananan page but, as a lot of people were disappointed at not being able to get tickets for some events, we urge you to consider booking early this year. Tickets for members are on sale now. Tickets for the general public will be on sale from April 1st.

From 6th to 13th April 2019 we will be holding another Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition and Workshop.
The deadline for entering the Tertis Viola Competition has passed. We have had 107 entries from 38 countries. The judges watched the DVDs and selected 42 competitors for the next stage in April 2019. On the Tertis page are links to Paypal for the workshop fees for anyone who would like to attend the workshops and recitals. The recitals are also open to the public and tickets are available from the box office, +44 (0)1624-832662 or by emailing The Tertis page also contains the link to download the test piece, Canto which was composed specially for the competition by Roxanne Panufnik. Details of all events can be found on our Whats On page
