‘Ivy’ by James Hogan
Ivy is a barmaid who has been forced to retire – replaced by the ‘Teenage Tart’. She has worked and lived in the same hotel for 40 years, waiting for her love, Nobby, to return. It is her last afternoon in employment. In the staff room she reflects on her life, her days in the WAAFS on the Isle of Man with her best friend, Inky, and offers her advice to those staying behind. No one is listening.
Ivy: Stephanie Gray
Victor: Howard Caine
Entry includes hotpot/chicken curry or veggie option, gateaux and coffee.

2017 was a big year for the Holy Moly & The Crackers: the ever-evolving gypsy-folk-rock band released their new album ‘Salem’ in July 2017 on their own label, Pink Lane Records (in association with Kartel Music Group and Wipe Out Publishing). The album received acclaimed reviews from Clash Magazine, R2 Magazine, Folk Radio UK, God Is In The TV Zine, The Crack, No Depression (U.S.), Blown Speaker (U.S.) to name but a few.
Over the course of the album campaign HMATC toured the UK twice, selling out venues across the country, and made successful debuts in The Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy as well as continuing their success on the festival circuit with performances at Boomtown Fair, Bestival, Camp Bestival, amongst others.
‘Salem’s lead single, the barnstorming indie-rock anthem ‘Cold Comfort Lane’, was included on major Spotify playlists: New Noise, Fresh Finds and #WCE-Woman Crush Everyday. The band also had significant sync success, with ‘Cold Comfort Lane’ used by E4, BT Vision, Capital One and Ultimate Ears.

ALAW combines the craftsmanship of three leading musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion – the traditional music of Wales. Whether unearthing rare gems or reimagining a well loved melody they treat their music with a deftness and sensitivity that is thoroughly absorbing. Combined with powerful song writing and original tunes, this makes for a musical experience that will stay with the listener long after the concert has ended.
Oli and Jamie will be well known to Manx audiences through their performances with Jamie Smith’s Mabon. Between the three of them they have performed with Richard Thompson, Barrule, The Devil’s Violin, Ian McMillan and more. From stirring songs to driving jigs – they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.
