Statue - Bust of Miss M. L. Wood

Culture Vannin provided financial support for a statute of founder of the Manx Music Festival, Miss M L Wood, which was unveiled at the Guild in 2012. By talented sculptor, Stephanie Quayle of Ballagraingey Farm, the sculpture marks 120 years of the festival. With more than 1,800 entrants competing in about 160 classes, the competition is the biggest music festival event in the Island's calendar. Kiaull Manninagh Jiu sent special congratulations to all of those who competed in Manx music and dance classes and, of course, to three times Cleveland Medal winner, Mandy Griffin, who thrilled audiences throughout the festival.
