The Isle of Man Flower Festival is an annual, week-long event which has established itself as a firm favourite in the summer calendar, with thousands visiting churches and other participating venues to view the displays during Manx National Week. In 2015, 17 venues took part in the Flower Festival, including churches, Manx National Heritage sites and a joint project between Milntown and Bunscoill Rhumsaa. Culture Vannin provided support towards the printing costs of festival brochures, which were distributed free of cost to the public.
Chairman of Culture Vannin, Hon Phil Gawne MHK, commented: 'The Flower Festival is at the heart of our communities, and cultural life. It encourages everyone - Manx and visitors alike - to connect with our beautiful churches and chapels, which are brought to life through floral and art displays, concerts and gatherings. The festival often unlocks places of spirituality and tranquillity to new audiences, connecting them to a cornerstone of our culture. Culture Vannin is delighted to be able to support the festival for 2015.'
