taking our culture forward

Culture Vannin 40

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the Manx Heritage Foundation Act, which created the Manx Heritage Foundation charity that is known as Culture Vannin today.

We've always been proud to support, promote and celebrate contemporary Manx culture, drawing on our cultural heritage to help shape an exciting future. Throughout the year we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary with a series of special releases, projects and events.
Some of these include the 40 Manx things challenge, the special 40th anniversary grants scheme, 40 archive films, and the Manx Celebration concert of music and dance.

The year is an extra-special celebration of Manx culture and all those who create, practise and enjoy it, and who have done so for decades.
