Hockey fest with a difference

Rodeo bulls, wheelbarrows, Oompah bands and a smashed egg relay will all be on the menu, together with more traditional sporting activities, when the 'fun' Isle of Man Hockey Festival starts today (Friday).

A busy weekend will see teams from on and off-Island take part in a series of matches and fun events.

The festival, celebrating its 58th anniversary, starts with a welcome gathering at Amber in Douglas this evening.
