The Festival

Spanning across the 3 towns of Prestonpans Cockenzie & Portseton in East Lothian the 3 Harbours Arts Festival offers a variety of exhibitions, workshops, talks, children’s events and performances.

Over 9 days the festival is as diverse as the ever present sea, with craft, fine art, exhibitions in people’s homes, sculpture, and events. There’s music; traditional, classical and contemporary, as well as seafood festivals and street food vendors of all kinds, just to scratch the surface. It’s all here! And then, when you need a break from all that, you can wiggle your toes in the sand of our beautiful beaches.

Throughout the year we also have a series of fundraising events ranging from local Art Exhibitions, Cheese & Wine evenings, music nights and more. You can find out what’s on our Events Calendar

The Festival Co ordinator

 

The Committee is indebted to many individuals who give time and expertise to ensure that there is a festival. The enthusiasm of artists and visitors creates a unique atmosphere and we thank them all for their support.

The advertisers in the brochure have supported us generously as have individuals through personal donations.

We also express our gratitude to East Lothian Council for the considerable assistance and support given by its officials and councillors at our regular liaison meetings. The advice and help of the Harbour Masters and the office of the Fishermen’s Association is invaluable in managing a busy harbour area.

Thanks to all the venues for the use of their premises for events and artists’ venues in support of the Festival.

And most importantly, we thank the residents and businesses of Prestonpans, Cockenzie and Portseton who not only provide the volunteer help needed but give behind-the-scenes support in a myriad of ways. The tolerance and patience shown when your area is turned into a festival cannot be underestimated.
