About An Lanntair 

An Lanntair is a multi arts venue – at one and the same time a contemporary art gallery, a theatre, a cinema, a concert hall, a platform for poetry and literature, a studio – every space is stretched to showcase the arts in multiple forms.   Encompassing it all, we pride ourselves in presenting an inspirational programme of excellence that engages and illuminates its audiences.

Our work stretches across a national and indeed international platform, yet our distinctiveness lies in being ‘of the place’, rooted in who we are, and the creativity of Gaelic and the Outer Hebrides takes centre stage.  In October 2005, following a ten year campaign, our magnificent, nationally significant new arts centre on the Stornoway waterfront was opened.  Our facility includes a 220 seat auditorium, gallery space, office space, shop, bar and restaurant facilities.  The building was one of the largest ever arts developments in the Highlands and Islands and is of key strategic importance nationally for the arts and culture of the Outer Hebrides.
