Packing for the Convention – here's a dress guide

I was asked how we should dress for the events on our calendar. Here are my recommendations.

Thursday Night @ Manx National Heritage — Smart casual

Friday Coach tour — walking shoes and rain gear. Dress in layers. 

Friday Night — Smart casual

Saturday Dinner — Dress up nicely please. It’s our big day!

Sunday Tynwald Garden Party — Very smart. Suits, jacket & ties, sun dresses (or warmer version!) OK for ladies to wear pants but smart not jeans. It’s on grass so watch those stilettos. Hats optional but worn by many women.

Sunday Church — Church clothes. It’s a short walk from the hotel.

Monday Tynwald — Sitting on the bleachers outside. Dress for the weather. Take a rain poncho or sunhat depending on forecast.

Monday dinner — it’s a family affair, dress however you want.
