Whats On The Prom,jubilee Lock End.


Recommended Posts

I noticed what appears to be lots of stalls set out on the walk way when driving home. Must have missed any adverts for the event, what is it and for how long is it on for?

As it's sanctioned by DDP and Douglas Corp ( with the organisers, not the corpy or DDP, bearing all the costs ) one would assume that the required permits to trade are in order.   Why do some people

In the Market Hall would be a good venue for Christmas. The popularity of the preserved foods,such as Salamis,cheeses,etc.does suggest that a good delicatessen would do well in Douglas.

It's a 'European' food and craft market, you know, stalls from the continent that have been brought over. I get plenty of manx produce from all the manx food markets during the year, but it's nice to

We spotted it today and thought we'd have a peek. The only problem being, there wasn't a parking place to be had, so we didn't bother.

One or two gaps on the prom with cars waiting to get in. But honestly, who wants to drive around Douglas in circles and along the stop/start prom and up to Athol Street or Castle Mona Avenue to get a parking place half a mile away from where you want to be?

 

And the prom was pretty snared up anyway for a while by white van man driving smack into a horse tram. The horse was OK, so we could chuckle about it. Did he expect the tram to swerve or something?

 

Going into Douglas really isn't the pleasure it once was, and the aroma near the Queens Hotel and Port Jack resembled a neglected public toilet. It can't really be 'ozone' can it?

Why do some people have to knock everything that others try to do to give a bit of life and variety to the town?

OMFG are you for real? If you want Manx stuff, go the farmers market or Shoprite or Tescos, this was something a little different, don't like change? feeling a little inbred? Yes, you probably are.
