The Isle of Man Young Farmers’ concerts are, for many, one of the highlights of the Manx calendar.

The shows, which mercilessly lampoon many prominent people in island life, are always a sell-out.

They take place on March 7, 8 and 9 at the Gaiety Theatre, Douglas,

The organisers pit local groups against each other and vote for the best performance.

Some people queue overnight at the Sea Terminal in Douglas to ensure they can get a ticket.

Tickets go on sale at the Welcome Centre from 8am on Saturday, February 3.

The concerts are sponsored by Conister Bank and ‘fuelled’ by Isle of Man Creamery.

The Young Farmers say: ‘We’re excited to be supported by Conister Bank once again and to welcome the Isle of Man Creamery on board as sponsor also! The show couldn’t go on without their support and we’re extremely grateful for their involvement.’
