Welcome to the Official Stromness Shopping Week Website

Also Visit Stromness Shopping Week on Facebook 

We hope that everyone staying in Stromness and all our visitors enjoy the 66th Stromness Shopping Week!

As usual there will be a wide range of street entertainments during Shopping Week that will thrill and excite and engage both children and adults alike.  

The award winning Stromness Royal British Legion Pipe Band  will play selections of music throughout the week in various locations. 

The Shopping Week's Resident Band will play at various times throughout the week at the pierhead and in local pubs at night and of course at the open air dance on Saturday night where they will play from 7pm until Shopping Week came to an end at 11pm. 

Following its continuing success in Shopping Week the popular Shopping Week Hack  took place on Sunday 20th July at 12:30.

As usual we have all the old favourites such as the Yard of Ale, the Beer Race, Holms Swim, and the Shopping Week 10k Race.

There is also a full programme for the children of sports, round the town race, workshops, with many activities that they can take part in.

The Community Centre is open for visitors who will hopefully enjoy the Flower Club and WRI displays. 

Do take time to visit the photo gallery and view the highlights of 2013 Stromness Shopping Week depicted through the many photographs taken during the event. The Shopping Week Committee thank you for your continuing support of Shopping Week and for visiting this webpage.
