'A lively three days of folk music in Arran's main town, Brodick. Split between day sessions and evening concerts, the festival draws live bands and the odd troubadour from across the UK to the isle. There'll be workshops, too, for those who want to brush up on their musical skills.' Held Early June.

‘Robert McLellan was the most important Scottish dramatist and short story writer to work in living Scots in the twentieth century and his influence on the world of Scottish writing has been crucial. McLellan spent most of his working life on Arran and in 2004, the Arran Theatre and Arts Trust decided to honour his contribution to Scottish culture by instigating a festival which would raise awareness and celebrate McLellan's work as well as encourage new work in his name ... The Festival focuses currently on poetry, music, film and drama as well as providing workshops for adults and young people.’ Held Early September.

‘We play at community events, remembrance ceremonies, weddings, garden parties, street parties, christmas events, massed musical events, airshows, in restaurants and bars…. in fact we can probably play just about anywhere – we’ve even done a concert on top of a moving lorry! We have a wide range of musical genres to choose from our music library – so if you want the band to play a particular style or even a specific piece of music for your event, contact us and we’ll see what we can do! ... Thanks to generous grant funding, the band were able to start a youth programme for kids from as young as 6. The Brasslets programme is for children starting out on a brass instrument, you don't need your own instrument - you just need to bring yourself! As our Brasslets develop their skills, they will progress into the Youth Band.’
