To­day we con­tinue to cel­e­brate the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the

Isle of Man and Corn­wall with our tra­di­tional mu­sic and dance fes­ti­vals. Cor­nish groups reg­u­larly visit the Isle of Man and the spec­tac­u­lar Manx Dance group, Per­ree Bane, will be rep­re­sent­ing the Is­land at our own Celtic Fes­ti­val, Lowen­der Peran this month.

Lowen­der Peran takes place at the Ho­tel Bris­tol In Newquay from 1–4 Novem­ber.
