North Quay in Douglas is set for an action-packed weekend of music, motors, crafts and fashion on Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1.
The harbourside will host ‘North Quay Live’, an event with up to 16 live local bands, outdoor stalls selling Manx crafts and produce, a vintage car display and a vintage fashion fair in the market hall.
The event is a collaboration between Douglas Development Partnership, Event Management Solutions and Manx Radio.
Douglas town centre manager, Michelle O’Malley, said: ‘Once again North Quay will be the go-to destination at the end of this month for a great family day out.
‘The quayside is becoming recognised increasingly as a fantastically versatile community space and demonstrates to great effect what a tremendously positive impact regeneration can have on a town,’ added Michelle.
‘We’ve also been delighted to see the market hall in Douglas hosting the current season of artisan markets which bring such a wide variety of Manx goods together under one roof.
‘Events such as these are helping re-energise Douglas and show how much the town centre is evolving into a hub of social interaction that provides an experience - at a time when people’s budgets are coming increasingly under pressure - which goes far beyond the retail,’ said Michelle.
Douglas market hall is also the setting for artisan markets being held every Friday and Saturday throughout August, September and October, when local suppliers and traders showcase some of the finest Manx goods and crafts.
