New sculpture to celebrate cultural area on prom

Identity being kept secret for now

A new statue is being installed outside the Gaiety Theatre – but its identity is yet to be revealed.

The Isle of Man Arts Council has shared a picture of the sculpture – shrouded in a white sheet – on social media.

It says it's a 'very special commission' designed to celebrate the cultural area.

The statue – which some people are speculating could be Laxey actress Samantha Barks – will be unveiled next Friday (24 September).
