taking our culture forward

The Manx Folk Awards (Aundyryn Kiaull-Theay Vannin) are an annual set of informal competitions in traditional Manx music, dance and performance.

Organised by Department of Education, Sport and Culture, and Culture Vannin, the Manx Folk Awards are held the last week before the Easter holidays at a number of venues including the Douglas Youth Arts Centre, Trinity Church and the Methodist Hall, St. John's.

Please note that we have featured all performances for whom there is video footage available.
