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 in March and April have been cancelled including the Barbirolli International Oboe Festival. Cancellation of events in May and June, including the Mananan Festival will be considered in the near future.

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 2019 Mananan Festival was very successful. The line up for this year's Mananan Festival is on our Mananan Festival page. In view of the current Coronavirus situation, there is a possibility that the Mananan Festival may not go ahead. We will be making a decision in mid April and urge you to defer any bookings until then.

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.
