Newbie (1/14)



  1. Santander International is to sponsor Southern Dippers, a group of Islanders who plunge into the water around the south coast on New Year’s Day in aid of Isle of Man charities. Money raised from the 2021 dips will be going to Isle Listen, a charity that provides training in schools, the workplace, and the wider community, to empower and support Islanders with their mental health. 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Southern Dippers, an initiative that has seen some New Year’s Day dippers complete over 80 swims, raising £60,000 to date for various good causes in the Isle of Man. 100% of funds raised go to charity and the three-year sponsorship deal from Santander International will help Southern Dippers continue keeping the fun in fundraising. Lenny Conroy, event organiser for Southern Dippers, told B365: “We are naming the 2021 dips the Santander Splash in recognition of this fantastic sponsorship. Over the past 20 years, the dips have become increasingly popular, helping us raise significant sums for Isle of Man charities. Last year’s final dip in Port Erin attracted over 300 swimmers and it would be brilliant to exceed that this time.” The Santander Splash will take place on 1st January 2021, starting at 10am in Chapel Bay, Port St Mary, followed by Inner Harbour, Port St Mary at 10.45am, then Gansey Bay at 11.30am. The last swim will take place at 12.15pm in Port Erin Bay, when participants are invited to wear fancy dress. James Geldart, Managing Director, Santander International Isle of Man Branch, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support this invigorating community event that sees people come out whatever the weather, raising funds for great local charities. This really is something for everyone, so even if you don’t want to brave the waves, you can still join in the fun and cheer everyone on. What better way to start the New Year and support Isle Listen, who have provided invaluable mental health support in these particularly challenging times.” All funds raised from the Santander Splash 2021 will be going to Isle Listen. Donations are gratefully received, and commemorative T-Shirts will also be available for a donation. All participants enter the sea at their own risk.
  2. These lads are now supporting Pearl Jam on their US tour although subject to disruption.
  3. Triskel Promotions push forward from the legendary Sinead O Connor show in December to announce the triumphant return of LIGHTNING SEEDS who last played the final year at the Bottleneck for Bushys Brewery. That sold out show proved the band’s unbridled popularity with classic hits such as Pure, Marvellous, Sugar Coated Iceberg and The Life of Riley. The band celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Jollification,a career defining album packed with hits.They will be playing songs from this album and extend into a Greatest Hits package. The band were keen to return after such a great reception and so they take to the Royal Hall,Villa Marina. A bigger stage, bigger sound and bigger setlist promises for a class night. Tickets for the concert go on sale at Midday 15th Jan 2020 from usual outlets- Welcome Centre,Box Office 600555 or online at www.villagaiety.com Tickets are priced £32 inclusive of booking fee and support on the night from local indie posters Voodoo Bandits who had a busy and successful 2019 and start the year headlining at the Cooil in the Mitre,Ramsey Sat 24th Jan if you want to check them out.Amazing line up of local original talent.

  9. Apologies for another shameless plug but several months back Martin at Bushys tasked me with getting something a little different to celebrate the 20th year on the Bottleneck car park for him and his brand. Pleased to say Triskel managed to persuade Ian Broudie & LIGHTNING SEEDS to open the fortnight of 40 acts there and at Port Erin beach. The link pretty much reiterates this and more detail on when, where and how to sort tickets. Shifted half of the tickets in the first day which is most impressive.Thanks. http://www.triskelpromo.com/bushys-20th-anniversary-2017/ Direct ticket link as only available online: https://www.tickettailor.com/all-tickets/22645/0bbb/

  12. Barely a few weeks away from the best fortnight of the Isle of Man and of course the best motorcycle race in the World! BUSHYS celebrate 30 years of brewing the finest Ales. Bushys Beer Tent celebrates 18 years at the Bottleneck car park. Triskel Promotions celebrate 14 years of production of the bands for the tent and beach. This year we welcome Main Sponsor CAROLE NASH who head the Main Stage at the Tent. COLAS are our new sponsors of the Beach Stage Port Erin. We also welcome Suzuki and SURE Mobile. Posters have again been designed and edited by Martyn Cain. We will provide daily updates and are working on a link of a run down of all the bands scheduled to play over the 2 weeks.Whilst every effort is made to keep the information correct it is as always,subject to change. Please feel free to share this and suggest friends to add and we will do the rest!
  13. Now in its 14th year, with 55 individual dips under their belt the SOUTHERN DIPPERS are pleased to announce the 2015 New Years Day Dips. To date the SOUTHERN DIPPERS have raised in excess of £37,000 for a number of charities over the years and the group are happy to announce the 2015 chosen charity will be for MANX BREAST CANCER SUPPORT GROUP. 2014 saw some of the stormiest weather to hit the Island in 50 years and for the first time in its short history, Chapel Beach had to be cancelled but Port St Mary’s Harbour was done twice. The group has grown from the 7 in 2002 to well over 200 dippers for the finale at Port Erin last year, where creative fun fancy dress is the order of the day and a swift hot/cold drink in the nearest hostelries. The landlords have always been so welcoming considering their late night New Year’s Eve events but every year they welcome us back. This year one of the original 7 swimmers, Paddy Croft opens the doors of THE FISH HOUSE after the first swim for a cup of his famous fish soup. Kay, Pat and Hannah at the Albert are on hand to serve refreshments at the Albert after the 2nd swim. Mark, Debbie and Andy at the Shore provide Hot Chocolates and home made cookies for the 3rd swim at Gansey whilst Debbie, Martin, Marcel, Matt and team welcome everyone to the finale outside the Bay Hotel for the final lunge! This years cash prizes for best fancy dress are being donated by Marcel Ltd. The theme is open so be as imaginative as you dare! Sponsors for this years dip, without who this would not be possible are POKERSTARS/DOMICILIUM/SURE MOBILE/THE FISH HOUSE/QUINE&CUBBON/SOUTHERN CHRONICLE Sponsor forms will be available from the Event Organiser and SURE MOBILE Port Erin Office (including a SURE goodie bag) and THE FISH HOUSE Port St Mary. Bucket collections will take place at all the entry points. SOUTHERN DIPPERS are always looking for sponsors to come on board and help safeguard the worthwhile fundraising in this novel fun way.
