Interceltique L'Orient in Brittany is underway with a large Manx contingent
A Manx artist is celebrating finally getting things together as the giant Festival Interceltique L'Orient in Brittany opens.
More than 600,000 people have arrived at the gathering which is a celebration of all things Celtic.
The Manx, who have been coming for many years, have been given honoured nation status.
Nichola Dixon says it has been a struggle to get things organised at the gallery she has helped set up:
The gallery featuring Manx artists Eileen Schaer, Will Sutton, Juan Moore and Julie Roberts will be open for a month.
