Manx Folk Awards 2018

Tue, 16 Jan 2018

Aundyryn Kiaull-Theay Vannin

Manx Folk Awards

25 - 29 March 2018

Organised by DESC, Culture Vannin and Manx National Heritage, the Manx Folk Awards are always held the last week before the Easter holidays at the Douglas Youth Arts Centre and Trinity Church.  This is so you can enter The Guild, 20th - 28th April 2018, with some of the same entries which should make your life easier! And also because at the end of that week the Shennaghys Jiu festival is held. Shennaghys Jiu is a non-competitive youth festival and is held the first weekend of the Easter holidays, 30th March - Monday 2nd April 2018.

The Manx Folk Awards are very informal competitions and we are always looking to encourage schools to take part for the first time. ​We are able to come in and help out teaching simple dance steps, tunes and help with Manx pronunciation.

So there's no excuse not to get involved!​ It’s all about the FUN!
