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 International Barbirolli Oboe Competition will be held from 28th March to 4th April 2020. Entry for the competition is now open and will close on 14th October. Entry forms and the guidance booklet are now available on the Barbirolli page. Click on the button to access.

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

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.
