Charities and traders who wish to be part of the 2018 Tynwald Day celebrations are being invited to apply for a plot on the Fairfield at St John’s.
Application forms for this year’s event are available from Public Estates & Housing Division at the Department of Infrastructure.
There are approximately 138 plots on the Tynwald Fairfield that help to add to the occasion by providing entertainment, games and items for sale.
Manx-registered charities and traders who had a stall in 2017 will automatically receive an application form. Potential new stallholders can request a form by emailing their contact details and a brief description of the goods or services to be offered to ESS.DOI@gov.im.
There is no charge for the 10ft x 10ft plots and applicants who sell a wide variety of items or provide games or entertainment will be given priority over those who only display information or hand out leaflets.
In line with Isle of Man Government’s aim to reduce single use plastics, stallholders will be required to supply and use eco-friendly containers/cups/glasses etc as an alternative to single-use plastics, where appropriate.
Completed forms must be returned by Friday 27 April and notification of the allocation of plots will be confirmed by Monday 14 May.
Further information is available on the Public Estates & Housing section of the Department of Infrastructure website.
