Tynwald Day 2021

​The President of Tynwald, The Hon S C Rodan OBE MLC, has announced that planning is underway for the Tynwald Ceremony and a Tynwald Day programme of enhancements on 5th July 2021.

The President said:

‘In 2020 the Tynwald Ceremony took place in a modified form, to ensure that the Ceremony’s constitutional functions could be carried out but also with a view to keeping participants and the Manx public safe.

Since that time, I have been pleased to see that the Island’s vaccination programme is progressing well, with the aim of vaccinating all adults in the Phase Two group by early August.

Whilst some uncertainty remains, I am pleased to announce that the Tynwald Ceremony Arrangements Committee is planning optimistically for a Tynwald Day which will include more of the traditional elements of the Ceremony that were not possible in 2020 and a programme of enhancements that will lift the National celebration. Those enhancements include the Tynwald Fair and the public entertainment before and after the Ceremony.

My hope is that Islanders will be able to come together on 5th July to celebrate their National Day at St John’s in as normal a fashion as possible. Islanders should collectively and individually feel proud of their response to the pandemic, and I hope Tynwald Day will provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate what has been achieved.’
