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.

In 2020, we will be hosting the International Barbirolli Oboe Competition. Details are now available on the Barbirolli page. Click on the button.

Congratulations to Paul Laraia III

The 3 yearly Lionel Tertis Viola Competition & Festival has now completed and we can announce that the winner is Paul Vincent Laraia III from the USA. In second place was Yuchen Lu from China and in third was Paul Adrien Zientara from France. More pictures of the festival are available from the Tertis page

In 2020, we will be hosting the International Barbirolli Oboe Competition. Details will be available later this year.

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.
