Torchlit parade starts Year of Culture

Waiting for Video...

A torchlit procession, led by the Vikings of Mann, has kicked off the 2014 Year of Culture celebrations in Peel.

The procession began at Mill Yard carrying a flaming torch and went along the quayside to Peel Beach.

Chairman of Peel Town Commissioners, Ray Harmer, was handed the torch to light a beacon on the beach.

There was then a short firework display.

Mr Harmer said: ‘It was a fantastic start to the Year of Culture.

‘Thanks to John Shakespeare and Ian Davison.

‘There was a fantastic turnout even with the weather so bad.’
