Visit Port Erin Group utilised the Domestic Event Fund to host a range of events last year including the Port Erin Festival of the Beach and Sea and Port Erin's Countdown to Christmas.

Nicky Lowney, Secretary of Visit Port Erin Group:

‘The Domestic Event Fund has been absolutely brilliant for the Visit Port Erin Group, and has enabled us to develop innovative and larger scale event concepts for Port Erin. Our two events, ‘Port Erin Festival of the Beach and Sea’ and ‘Port Erin's Countdown to Christmas’ which were supported by the Fund, were a huge hit, and each weekend witnessed thousands of people visiting the town. Many local businesses saw a significant increase in trade as a result.

Events of this scale require a huge amount of infrastructure behind the scenes, and the Event Fund providing vital support towards these costs.

I am delighted to hear that the Fund has been extended; there’s still a lot of recovery to do, and it’s wonderful to see our residents and visitors alike, enjoying themselves. The Visit Port Erin Group will certainly be looking to utilise the Fund for future events’.
