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.

Each month we send out a newsletter as a reminder of events in the following month. If you would like to subscribe to this service, please click on the button and complete the form. We only require your email address and will not keep any other personal information.

The International Barbirolli Oboe Competition will be held from 28th March to 4th April 2020. Entry for the competition is now closed. The Set Piece and Guidance Booklet are available to download on the Barbirolli Page

PLEASE NOTE the Guidance Booklet has been changed and competitors are recommended to download the new booklet

Sadly Raymond Leppard died on Tuesday 22nd October at his home in Indianapolis. As well as being an internationally renowned conducter, he was Patron of the Erin Arts Centre from 1971. His support will be sadly missed.

The 2019 Mananan Festival was very successful. The line up for next years Mananan Festival will be on our Mananan page as soon as the line-up is finalised 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 next year.

Congratulations to Paul Laraia III
