The Pickaquoy Centre Trust
The Pickaquoy Centre Trust is a charitable trust registered with the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR). The Trust assumed responsibility for the management of The Pickaquoy Centre on 6 April 1999.
The purpose of the Trust is centred on providing sports, health, leisure, arts and learning opportunities that enhance the quality of life and improve the health of Orkney's population. They do this by offering facilities to support a wide variety of activities designed with regard to all social groups within the community and at the same time ensuring that we provide a service that surpasses the expectations of our users.
The Pickaquoy Centre itself is renowned as a first class sports, arts, leisure and conference facility but also well known for the huge variety of activities which provide enjoyment for all ages and abilities.
This £8.5 million Millennium Project is Orkney's largest community and leisure facility. The Centre has proven to be an integral part of the community by hosting world renowned arts festivals, music events, exhibitions, conferences and sporting competitions.
The second phase of development of the Centre commenced in March 2011 with an estimated completion date of May 2012. This new development includes two swimming pools, squash courts and a new fitness suite. The construction site boundary will be separated from the campsite by the existing All Weather Pitch perimeter fence and additional fencing. This will add to existing facilities that include the UK most northerly independent cinema.
