Juan McGuinness hopes it'll be a mainstay of future TTs

A music, food and drink festival in the north of the Island is here to stay, according to one of the organisers.

Ramsey Commissioner Juan McGuinness was one of the brains behind the inaugural SprintFest 2019.

Held to coincide with the long-established Ramsey Sprint event, it was hoped more entertainment would help keep visitors in the town.

The local authority budgeted around £15,000 for SprintFest, and has had financial support from the Department for Enterprise and other sponsors.

Mr McGuinness reflected on a slightly damp first go with Dollin Mercer - how does he think it went?
