Promoter involved in Manx dispute linked to festival collapse

Festival company goes into liquidation

An entertainment promoter involved in a dispute with the Isle of Man Government has seen a company he was involved with go into liquidation.

 

Lee O'Hanlon is the boss of TinyCow which last autumn made a number of serious allegations against the Department of Economic Development - claiming he was owed money for two gigs staged here.

That matter is unresolved.

Last month, Mr O’Hanlon’s latest venture, the Hope and Glory Festival in Liverpool, was called off amid reports of overcrowding, long delays for artists and axed acts.

The firm behind it has now gone into liquidation owing almost £890,000 to creditors.
