Language festival to take place this weekend

Event to celebrate Manx Gaelic

A wide range of events are being held this weekend, to practice, promote and celebrate Manx Gaelic.

The 'Cooish' language festival seeks to provide speakers of all ability levels the opportunity to explore Manx in a relaxed, fun environment.

First up is 'Bee ec Greens' - a gentle introduction to the weekend with an informal dinner, at Green's restaurant in St John's from 7:30.

Nicola Tooms, who has gone from complete beginner to fluent Manx speaker in her adulthood, told Manx Radio what's up next, tomorrow morning (Sat 17)or more information, search Cooish, on social media.
