An Lanntair has listened to its audiences and intends to respond to demand and identify a way to trial a period of Sunday opening for the arts centre at some point in the future, it was explained this afternoon.

welovestornoway.com is happy to make this clear following some comments from readers on our Facebook page about our report earlier today (Thursday 14th September).

The proposal for a trial of Sunday opening this winter will not be proceeded with, the arts centre has confirmed.

However, a spokesperson for the arts centre said that the board agreed at its meeting this week that support for a trial is sufficient to make it appropriate for the centre to seek some way of meeting the perceived demand.

As the statement on behalf of An Lanntair's board said earlier today: "In a meeting on 13th September 2017, An Lanntair's Board of Directors agreed to commit to identifying a way for a trial to take place in the future."
