Tynwald Day 2021 - What's On and Entertainment
The entertainment on Tynwald Day showcases the diversity the Isle of Man has to offer. The entertainment starts at 9am with all day activities including the Arboretum, Cooil y Ree and the traditional stalls on the back Fairfield.
All of St. John's is involved with free activities in the Bunscoill, Culture Vannin and outdoors on Tynwald Green and the Royal Chapel. Traditional Manx dancing is always a focal point, mixed with live music from local silver bands, the IOM woodwind orchestra, local harpists, choirs and musicians scheduled throughout the day.
Celebrate the Viking origins of Tynwald in the Viking Village before walking over to the Arboretum which is home for one day to the Global Village offering food and entertainment from around the world. On the way pop into Bunscoill Ghaelgagh to practice a little Manx Galeg.
The TynwaldFest tent will be the focus for children's entertainment with a craft workshop running from mid-morning and dance performances in the afternoon. The deckchairs will be out and we welcome everyone to stay for the dancing part of the evening. From 5pm there will be local food and drink available and the live music starts - perfect for all the family.
The activities on Tynwald Day are brought to a close at 10pm by the magnificent Ellan Vannin Pipes and Drums performing the Manx Anthem on Tynwald Hill.
Further details and times for the many activities and performances can be found in a separate leaflet available on the day.
