Mareel, the most northerly music, cinema and creative industries centre in the UK, has opened in Lerwick, Shetland. It has been years in development and construction, but this is harvest-time for the energy and resources invested. The name mareel comes from the Old Norse for 'sea-fire' and refers to the sparkling, luminous light seen on the water at hairst or 'harvest', particularly under a harvest-moon.
