National Day celebrations

It's the most important date in the Isle of Man's legislative calendar.

Crowds are expected at Tynwald Day to take part in the ceremony and enjoy the celebrations.

The court has 20 new laws to promulgate, and this will be the first national day for President Clare Christian and Allan Bell as Chief Minister.

The Tynwald Day celebrations will be broadcast live in the Manx Museum which will be open from 9.30am and screen live footage of the day’s proceedings in the Museum lecture theatre.

Further information on the origins of Tynwald can be found on a new website - www.thingsites.com - which has been designed to promote the history and legacy of Norse parliamentary sites across Northern Europe.

Beth Espey has more details on today's proceedings
