Up early top hat and tails and Suzie in her new dress. Fortunately the weather is good and by the time we get to St Johns there is already a substantial crowd.

This was my first Tynwald Ceremony as an MHK so it was all new, no faux pas I am pleased to say and everything went well.

St Johns

tynwald day


Afterwards time to take in the fair before departing to Cronk y Voddy for their traditional sports day. A lot of people having fun, children participating and even some dog racing.

A great day full of the best of Manx tradition.
