Our unique Manx Hop Tu Naa celebration. Hop tu Naa was traditionally considered to be the beginning of the Celtic new year and the start of winter.
This year we celebrate Jinny the Witch, synonymous with the songs we still sing today. There will be dancing, stories and folk customs from times gone by.
Carve your *free turnip lantern, make a herbal charm and discover seasonal baking. Join a storytelling session and learn about superstitions from the past.
Our grand turnip lantern parade is led by the musicians through the village at 4pm, a great way to end the day’s festivities.
Most of the event will take place undercover so visitors need not worry about the weather.
*Turnips subject to availability.
