Welcome to the Erin Arts Centre.

Following the Isle of Man Government announcement to close schools, bars, clubs, cafés etc the Erin Arts Centre is now closed due to the Coronavirus. All events up to the end of August have been cancelled including the Barbirolli International Oboe Festival and the Mananan Festival. We hope that the annual opera in September will happen.

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. This service is currently suspended until we know when we can start events again. If you would like to subscribe to this service when it recommences, please click on the button and complete the form. We only require your email address and we do not keep any other personal information from this service.

The 2019 Mananan Festival was very successful but the 2020 Festival has been cancelled. It is hoped that we can hold the 2021 Festival with the same artistes who were booked for 2020. The line up for the cancelled Festival (and hopefuly the 2021 Festival) is on our Mananan Festival page.

Sadly Raymond Leppard died on Tuesday 22nd October 2019 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.
