taking our culture forward

2016 marked the 10th anniversary of Bree, celebrated at their Big Bree Workshop Weekend in November at the Youth Arts Centre in Douglas.

Bree is a youth education movement celebrating Manx music, dance and culture. Designed for children aged between 10 and 18, Bree (which is Manx for ‘vitality’) aims to both introduce and develop Manx culture within the Island’s young musicians and dancers and ensure that it remains a living tradition. Bree provides opportunities for young people who already sing, dance or play an instrument and are interested in Manx culture to socialise, share ideas and learn from more experienced musicians.

More about Bree and how to take part can be found on ManxMusic.com: http://www.manxmusic.com/education_page_92022.html

Thanks are owed to Ron Corkish for all of the filming from the weekend:
