STUDENTS of both film and music have the chance to publicly showcase their talents at a performance in Mareel next month.

Audiences can expect a wide range of musical genres and styles during the performance, from chilled-out acoustic sets, electronic funk and trip-hop to heavy rock and metal.

On 20 June, for the first time, film students will also be showcasing their videos on the big screen in cinema one at the Lerwick arts centre.


Students on the Vocational Pathways, NC, HNC and BA courses in music and film are taught at Mareel in a partnership between Shetland Arts and Shetland College UHI.

Students from these courses have gone on to progress from the Vocational Pathways course up to the BA degree and have also launched their own music or film careers.
