Fiona McArdle introduces the final programme in this series. We start with a reminder of Ruth Keggin Gell's workshops on Taizé chants (with an explanation of their background) and on Manx for worship on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th January. Later on we hear Ruth herself reminding us of Culture Vannin's Manx lessons on Zoom each Wednesday from 17th January.

Will Price of Port Erin has set up Amity Publications Ltd and has just published a bilingual edition of The Amazing Adventures of Tom and Charlie / Ny Contoyrtyssyn Yindyssagh ec Tom as Charlie. He explains how the book came about, with the Manx translation by Chris Sheard and illustrations by Grainney Sheard.

Fiona McArdle herself was instrumental in setting up Arrane son Mannin in 2005, a competition to choose a song in the Manx language to represent the Island in a contest for songs in the Celtic languages of each of the Celtic nations taking part in the Pan Celtic Festival in Ireland. This year's Arrane son Mannin is on Friday 12th January.
