Michael Players guardians of Manx dialect manuscripts

The Michael Players have safeguarded community traditions and inspired generation- so says the chair of Culture Vannin, Chris Thomas.

The community-based drama group was recognised for over 60 years of cultural contributions through the award of the Reih Bleeaney Vanannan 2017, or Manannan's Choice of the Year.

An annual award from Culture Vannin, it's given to an individual or group who has made the greatest contribution to the Island's cultural heritage.

Mr Thomas praised the Players for presenting, preserving and promoting Manx dialect theatre.
