OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO SPONSOR THE MANX QUEENIE FESTIVAL The first ever Manx Queenie Festival was held in August 2008 comprising of seafood bbq's, celebrity corporate cooking demonstrations, local community and hospitality recipe competItions and public tasting events. The finale to the festival 'Marine Day, A Celebration of the Sea' in Port St Mary attracted some 3,000 people including National television crews and none other than celebrity TV chefs Si King and Dave Myers - 'The Hairy Bikers'! This years event is planned to be bigger and better with a long weekend programme of events that will appeal to all parts of the Manx community young and old. The Manx Queenie Festival aims to educate people about the fantastic local food delicacy the Queenie (or Queen Scallop) and the story it has in Manx life. In addition, it aims to raise awareness of the diversity of the marine wildlife in the surrounding sea and celebrate all elements that connect with it, including conservation, recreation, fishing and science and to sharing in a greater appreciation for the coast and all that is around us on the stunning Isle of Man. This years Queenie Festival is planned to run from Friday 1 July to Sunday 3 July and will be promoted in the lead up to the festival both on and off island by a planned and co-ordinated marketing and PR plan. Many of the events within the festival will involve local drama groups, street theatre, school children, artists, actors, storytellers and volunteers and will really be a talking point in the lead up, during and after the festival and would certainly offer a fantastic opportunity to local business's to support and become a part of. Revenues will be generated though space hire, advertising and programme sales, however, funding for the event success is crucial. That is why we have 3 great value sponsorship deals on offer that aim to build long term value for your business and strengthen the festival year on year! Interested..?
