Port Erin to host Festival of Returning Light

Village hosts range of activities

Workshops, parades, music and dancing are all promised today (Saturday) at the first annual 'Festival of Returning Light' in the south of the Island.

A celebration of St Bridget's Day and the beginning of spring, it's been organised by Port Erin Commissioners.

Starting at 10am, there's a chance for the public to make reed crosses and willow lanterns in the waiting room at the Railway Station in the village.

From 6.30pm, there'll be a torch-lit parade from the station to the beach where there'll be Manx folk music and dance followed by a fire display to represent the returning light of spring.

Organisers are promising a fun day out for all the family, as well as some great photo opportunities.
