Events Inverness • Tachartasan Inbhir nis
Whether you fancy traditional or modern, wish to look on or join in, seek out the quiet life or the wild life, enjoy the indoors or the great outdoors there's always something happening, whatever the time of year. What's more, you'll find more than ever happening during 2014 - Scotland's Year of Homecoming.
Rockness (returning in 2015) and Belladrum are two of Scotland’s most important music festivals while if you prefer participation, you could try the Beast Race Scotland - an epic 10k obstacle race or the Loch Ness Marathon and festival of running - one of Scotland’s biggest and the most scenic. Of course size isn’t everything - Inverness Highland Games (staged in the world’s oldest Highland Games Stadium), Blas Festival and the Happyness Comedy Festival are smaller but just as entertaining.
The city’s largest venue - Eden Court Theatre has a wide programme of events including many of the country’s top performers and national touring productions such as Scottish Ballet. The more intimate Eden Court cinema complements the screenings at the larger Vue cinema. Another venue offering performances from bands to comedy is the Ironworks while a number of pubs and clubs offer everything from jazz to traditional music sessions ( Hootanannay have these daily) and pianists to up and coming bands.
