Short film produced by Culture Vannin

A new short film by Culture Vannin showcases and explains a quirky Celtic festive period custom.

'Hunt the Wren' takes place on Boxing Day, also known as St Stephen's Day, and involves people parading around their local community, stopping periodically to do a traditional dance to music.

The version here stems from a story in the Island's folklore, involving Manannan and a witch.

Here's an excerpt from the film:
