Usually in July and August, there are various events for tourists in Inverness city including performances of Highland Dancing and the Inverness Pipe Band, as well as live music in the pubs. For summer 2022, it's hoped that the Inverness Highland Games will resume after a 2-year break, especially as it will be the 200th anniversary of the Games here. At the end of June, the city will be hosting the European Pipe Band Championships.
Eden Court Theatre and Cinema has a programme of shows and films.
The Ironworks Live Music Venue on Academy Street features concerts in all genres of music. The invernessGiGs web site includes music news, events listings, reviews, etc.
There's live music in many pubs including Hootananny in Church Street (open daily from 5pm - midnight with traditional music from 9pm onwards). Also MacGregor's Bar (end of Academy Street) and the Gellions (High Street).
