Tynwald Day 2020 changes
Tynwald Day, the national day of the Isle of Man, has at its heart a Ceremony embodying certain constitutional functions of the Manx legislature. These include the swearing in of coroners, the promulgation and captioning of Acts, the presentation of petitions and the carrying forward of unfinished Keys business to the next legislative year.
In April the Tynwald Ceremony Arrangements Committee decided, with regret, to cancel for this year those traditional elements of the Day which involve the participation of the general Manx public and of visitors from off the Island. These are:
the Tynwald Fair
the programme of enhancements and public entertainment before and after the Ceremony
the attendance of a military guard of honour and band; and
the attendance of VIP guests from the UK and further afield.
To help people celebrate from home we are going to create and share some great ideas online so everyone can have Tynwald Day Your Way.
