Manx National Day celebrated on 5 July
The Royal Navy will be the visiting military unit at this year's Tynwald Day ceremony.
The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines Portsmouth will be on hand to perform, while the Guard of Honour will consist of personnel drawn from the State Ceremonial Training Section.
Meanwhile, Year of Our Island organisers say July has been designated 'Culture Month', during which visitors to the Island are being encouraged to explore more, do more and share more.
That includes going to St John's on 5 July to witness proceedings on the Isle of Man's national day.
