Flower Workshops

Our 2019 flower workshops were well supported and much enjoyed by all who took part earlier this year and plans are well in hand for more workshops next year.

There will be an afternoon and an evening session to be held at St Johns with a provisional date of Tuesday 24th March 2020. Make a note in your diaries if you'd like to join us for an informative demonstration plus a chance to ask questions and to have a go yourselves. More details to follow!

Our 2020 Theme

We're exploring links with UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man and our theme for the 2020 Festival will be taken from their promotional literature: 'A Special Place for People and Nature'. Invitations are going out this week to over 70 potential 2020 participant venues and, hopefully, we'll soon have a good idea which parts of the Island our enthusiastic visitors will be enjoying next summer.

Well done to our 2019 venue, Christ Church Laxey!

In response to the severe flooding suffered by residents of Glen Road in the village, Christ Church opened its doors today for use as a Rest and Emergency Centre run by the Civil Defence. Many people put aside their normal day duties and jobs to offer warmth, company and support for those in need.
