Have your say in who’s coming to Skye stages next year
As we plan for a safe future for performing arts on Skye, we are inviting our friends and supporters to have a say in what performances they would like to see in our venues next year.
To this end, those hard-working people at the Touring Network are showcasing a series of two Spotlight Sessions – specially curated nights featuring snippets of professional performances which could be touring Skye next year. This online event is free.
This is an opportunity for you, our audiences, to take a look at a small selection of great quality performances on offer for 2021 and have your say in who you would like to see again.
The event will be hosted by Falkirk playwright, novelist, performer and bletherer Alan Bissett, so expect an evening of joyous interaction as well as an introduction to six amazing performances.
These online events take place on Facebook (www.facebook.com/sealleventsskye).

We look forward to welcoming you.
PS The Touring Network (the body that supports, represents and connects independent promoters and performers in the north of Scotland) have set up a crowdfunder to Keep Rural Arts Alive and continue to bring high quality performance to the Highlands when it is safe to do so, of course.
