Culture Vannin Film Night

A film night celebrating all things Manx…

The premiere of 7 new films about the Isle of Man, its culture and its people – murder, traditions, dandelion tooters, disgusting cooking & more – but unlike any other film screening:

* With Mera Royle Music performing live to never-before-seen drone footage of some of the Isle of Man’s most beautiful landscapes.
* Conversations with some of the Isle of Man’s most exciting and innovative film makers
* The recording of a Manx Radio interview in front of the live audience for later broadcast
* The evening will culminate in the premiere of ‘Cornaa’, a collaboration between visionary film-maker, Brook Wassall, and award-winning harpist, Mera Royle, which is likely to be one of the most beautiful films you will ever see about the Isle of Man.

The Culture Vannin Film Night will take place on Thursday 27 June at the Peel Centenary Centre at 7.30pm
Tickets are £5 and are available online, at Culture Vannin, Celtic Gold (Peel) or Shakti Man (Ramsey).

Theatre Supper – A Lady of Letters

 

lan Bennett’s Lady of Letters

Miss Irene Ruddock is a working class woman living on her own near Bradford. She is not afraid to speak, or rather write, her mind. In fact she is a prolific writer of letters, the recipients of which are targeted by Irene as a means of remedying all the social ills she sees around her.

Alas her unchecked pen eventually causes too much mischief and action has to be taken……
