Late entry – a Rooftop concert!

Sometimes we just leap at the chance of a new event, so when we heard that the 45-strong Street Orchestra of The Nevis Ensemble were staying in Sabhal Mòr on Tuesday 27 August at 8.30pm we just had to arrange a short late evening rooftop event for them. Come along to Sabhal Mòr Ostiag, main venue and follow the signs to the Fàs building for a free 45 mins of wonderful sounds over the Sound!

Events for Autumn 2019


With the 2019 Fèis an Eilein | Skye Festival drawing to a close on 20 August, SEALL continues its year-round programme of live performing arts events in a brand new Autumn season.

With trad, classical and world music; adult and children’s theatre, workshops, literature and a cool film festival, there’s lots to see in the lead-up to Winter.

Printed copies of the 2019 Autumn programme will be available from outlets across Skye and Lochalsh in a few weeks’ time.

In the meantime, here’s a digital copy we prepared earlier.

Click on the image below and book your tickets early.

Tha sinn a’ deànamh fiughair ri fàilte a chur oirbh uile

We look forward to welcoming you.


So easy to make a donation!

Many of you are adding in a little extra donation when you buy a ticket online. Donations do not attract a booking fee. It is an easy way to make a really BIG donation to SEALL / Skye Festival! Next time you buy a ticket online – think about how else you can support our work – mòran taing. SEALL is a charity and we always need to raise extra funding, for example, to bring high quality events for young audiences. 

Cucinema – the Sleat video

In early April we held a film and pasta-making event with Cucinema, 12 enthusiastic film and pasta-making folk from Italy and Barcelona. Here is the video of the event – the first part is with us in Ardvasar Hall, before they moved onto the Lyth Arts Centre.. Great fun – we must do it again.

SEALL’s Car Share Project

We are encouraging you to offer lifts and share lifts for our events. Go to the SEALL Car Share Facebook page on

Request to join and then start using it. Remember it is as important that you can offer a lift as well as ask for one! Behind the scene the SEALL staff will help make it all happen.

Ardvasar & Tarskavaig Charity Cafes

The Annual joy of the Thursday mid-day Charity Cafes has started in Ardvasar Hall. Lots of local charities do their utmost to feed your well with home-baking, lunches, tea and coffees.
