Manx Radio celebrates Island of Culture

The Isle of Man Arts Council has appointed Manx Radio as official radio media partner for its 2014 Island of Culture celebrations.

The station, which has its 50th birthday next year, will support the council with a celebration of culture and the arts with lots of events planned during the year. A number of special guests will also visit the Island.

manxMichael Lees, Committee Member of the Isle of Man Arts Council and Event Director of Island of Culture, commented: “Manx Radio has the ability to bring to life a large number of cultural events that take place around the Island thanks to its Outside Broadcast facility. It already supports a huge range of community, arts and specific interest events for people of all ages across the Island, and will increase this commitment in 2014 as part of its own celebrations.

“Island of Culture is something for everyone to participant in and enjoy, and so we feel they are the best partner for us to work with to open up the programme to the residents of the Isle of Man.”

John Marsom, Business Director of Manx Radio, commented: “Being appointed as the Arts Council’s ‘Island of Culture’ official radio media partner for next year is particularly apt given that in 2014, Manx Radio celebrates its 50th anniversary.

“Since the launch of Manx Radio in 1964, supporting the Island’s arts, performing arts and culture has been at the heart of our broadcasting, and we look forward to bringing to air the incredible array of talent the Island has to offer and promoting this to a national audience next year.”
