Hundreds take part in Manx Folk Awards

Seven hundred school children took part in the annual Manx Folk Awards this week.

The competition, now in its third year, celebrates all things “Manx” – from singing and recitation, to folk groups and traditional dancing.

Children from all five key stages of school entered in approximately 41 categories.

In KS1 Daisy Quinn took first place for her recitation, with Joseph Savage being praised for his manx singing, and Manor Park school came first in the group singing class.

KS2...and the couples dance award went to Nichole Crellin and Olivia Nichol-Clark, and Michael Melody Musicians took first place in group singing with under ten members.

Zachary Elliott impressed the judges with his KS3 recitation, and Victoria Broadman took the top prize for her solo girls dance.

The full list of the winners and runners up is as follows - well done to them all!
