ISLAND is a triumph of design, technical development and construction, offering arts presenters and the people of Northern Ireland a choice of venues and services to suit every need.

Opened in June 2001, ISLAND has earned the excellent reputation as one of Ireland’s major leading multi-arts venues. ISLAND proudly presents a unique diversity of arts and entertainment choices all year round and is Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s visually stunning arts base for Lisburn’s vibrant cultural and creative scene.

Join over 280,000 visitors a year who visit ISLAND and experience the expectation and excitement of live theatre performances, music, dance and children’s’ theatre from Northern Ireland’s top performers, and an array of national and international companies.

Bursting at the seams with creativity, ISLAND Arts Centre runs a year round firstclass programme of diverse classes and workshops including visual and verbal arts, community arts, performing arts and a full education programme that actively encourages people of all abilities to explore and preserve our arts heritage.
