The Arran Theatre and Arts Trust
The Arran Theatre and Arts trust has been in existence since 1989 the main objective was to convert St George’s Church in Lamlash into a theatre. As part of that objective, the Trust ran many events and brought touring companies to Arran.
The project in St George’s Church did not come about, through no fault of the enthusiasm and fund raising on Arran, but because of wider political issues. Now, of course, we have the Community Theatre in Arran High School for which we are most grateful and, in fact, this is a more securely funded theatre in perpetuity than St George’s would have been, given the age of the church building and the demands which would have been made on volunteers to manage the facility.
So now, the Arran Theatre and Arts Trust, in the form of The McLellan Festival is continuing to go forward along with other island groups and organisations in fostering the visual, literary and performing arts on Arran and encouraging new work both on Arran and in Scotland through the McLellan Award for Play Writing (next competition 2013) & the Mclellan Poetry Prize which will be awarded this year 2012.
We have 2 projects we are involved with: “Arran Archaeology” is a joint venture between Arran Theatre and Arts Trust, Arran Arts Resource and the National Trust for Scotland’s Countryside Rangers at Brodick Castle and "Arran on Film" .
