Yn Chruinnaght Festival 2012

Culture Vannin awarded funding to Yn Chruinnaght Inter-Celtic Festival for its annual celebration of Manx culture and the Island's relationship with the other five Celtic countries. The festival involved performers of all ages and attracted good audiences in venues across the Island.

Artists included the Scottish group Blazin' Fiddles, the Breton group Forzh Penaos, the fantastic Scottish fiddler Rua MacMillan and Cornish band Pentorr, along with a host of excellent Manx groups providing support slots and a band night in the Laxey Working Men's Institute.

Yn Chruinnaght's outreach took music and dance to retirement homes and to local schools.
