Shennaghys Jiu Festival Celebrates Twenty First Anniversary!

   Here on the Isle of Man, the annual Shennaghys Jiu festival will be celebrating its twenty first anniversary (30th March – 2nd April). Predominantly based in Ramsey (with a special concert in Peel on Sunday afternoon), organisers are planning to highlight a wide range of local talent in conjunction with a continuous development of the festival atmosphere.

Building on the success of previous years, new festival goers and families are encouraged to sample some of their popular events during the Easter weekend. A visit to the festival’s website reveals an extensive list of exciting performers from the length and breadth of the Island, as well as visiting groups from Ireland and Cornwall.

A special part of Shennaghys Jiu, however, is the regular art display highlighting the work of local school children, which will be open to the public from the 26th March at Ramsey Town Hall.

Organisers of the festival would like to take this opportunity of thanking Island Aggregates, Corlett’s, Culture Vannin and Ramsey Town Commissioners for their continued support.
