Whats On The Prom,jubilee Lock End.


Recommended Posts

Don't tell anyone else, but I heard in the pub It's 'National Day' - and it's a ruse. All the foreigners there are getting rounded up and deported later today.

 

They're doing the same and offering a 'Free party and free drink!' on the next Burn's Night for the Scots.

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

Tynwald week and all these 'foreign' stalls, I bet there wasn't one selling Manx produce !

 

just wonderful !

 

I was thinking that also

 

Just goes to show where the locals are from these days

 

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 have some variety once in a while and we rarely get the opportunity for nice things like this on the Island. They were all Manx stalls out at Port St Mary last weekend.

 

Some people will just complain about anything. Good luck to this event, it's a good thing.

We went down this morning for a wonder, and really glad we did! We too got a £10 bag of sausages, some macaroons (lovely) and some other bits and bobs.

We also tried the churro's as we'd seen them on telly, but never for sale anywhere. Very sweet and sickly for grown ups, so could imagine what too many would do to a child.

The plants they are selling look very healthy and fairly priced.

Cheerful people, good banter, lovely smells from the food stalls - all in all, an enjoyable hour.

 

And, as we parked down by the lifeboat - a nice walk to and from the car!

The £10 bag of spicy sausages look rather good. Wife bought a different selection of cheese to try. Will get stuck in to the both this evening.

 

Wife & cheese?

So - this event is actually on Loch Promenade, then? Not on Queen's Promenade, as reported on MR News, Mandate and Webpage?

 

Outrageous, heads must roll for that mistake. Imagine going down to Queens Prom and not finding the market, you might see some sort of market further round the bay on Loch Prom but it would obviously never enter anyone's head to try looking there. thumbsup.gif

Everywhere I've seen it says Loch Promenade. Does it matter though? Even the markets own poster says 'Seafront Promenade', so there you go, it's on the seafront somewhere - good luck finding the brightly coloured stalls.

 

EDIT: mojo beat me to it.

Great post, thanks.

 

We went today, very impressed. Not some immitation crap, this was the real deal. Loads of really nice fresh food and stuff that you couldn't just buy at tesco. Well impressed, congrats to whoever made it happen. Do it again smile.png

 

Only depressing part is that we'd lunched at Tynwald. 25 quid worth of shitty frozen burgers on shitty jack frost baps then on to the Euro fair where they had a choice of boar or ostridge burgers for a quid cheaper, bah. Really showed up our local food vendors as complete tat. Couldn't even find the kipper baps at tynwald this year, was it there?

 

Deffo having one of those frankfurters for lunch tomorrow.

Well, you have Cllr Christian to thank for it being a big success. He was sitting outside the Queens this afternoon with some cronies and made sure that everyone there heard how brilliant he was.

 

Not only this market, many other things were all down to his brilliance.

Never been too sure which is which anyway. Apart from central prom which I think is somewhere in the middle.

Not trying to be facetious but how fresh could the food be?

Went this afternoon. Really enjoyed it and well done to Douglas Development Partnership for bringing it over. Stocked up on a load of French cheese, salamis, plants, confectionery. All way cheaper and better quality than I find here. Ate 2 great takeaways from the Asian and one of the French stalls like the fat twat I am. This would be great at Christmas too.

Doing something like this for Christmas would be great, they would have to find an indoor venue.

 

HTH - We got there at about 10.45am and they were prepping and starting to cook then, so pretty fresh :)
