Welcome to the Festival! It’s the 30th Festival, delivered entirely online, with just about everything free. To find out about events and how to access them, go direct to our Programme page. You’ll see the various days there. There’s a day-by-day list of events, and also lists of the various categories – talks, outings and so on, as there is also above. Accompanying the details of each event is a direct link to it.

We also have a full list of Foraging Fortnight events, including all those in the Programme and also for the weekends before and after.

We also have the programme for the Aviation Festival, which takes place on Thursday 10 September.

Elsewhere, you can find more about our background, and past festivals, including last year, and about Orkney itself.

Most of the events are streamed through our YouTube channel, where you can also find events that you’ve missed or go back to see favourites. Going direct to the YouTube channel also gives the opportunity to put questions to speakers. (It’s through YouTube’s LiveChat, opening first a free YouTube account.)

There are also social events where you can join a table with other Festival-goers and some of the speakers. For this you just need to complete a brief registration form so that we can send you a Zoom link. There is one form for the Peedie Kirk lunches, and one for the Festival Club and the Ceilidh.
