Peel Beach and Promenade

Launched in 2018, The Oie Voaldyn Festival is a reinterpretation and modernisation of the old Manx custom surrounding Oie Voaldyn or May Day Eve.

Traditionally, Oie Voaldyn was a time to celebrate the return of the fertility of the land, casting off darkness and celebrating light.  The aim of the Festival is to bring people together, to acknowledge and celebrate the return of summer and to provide a fittingly atmospheric renewal of an ancient local knees-up!    

This is a free event, suitable for the whole family. It features an enticing combination of music, food and traditional Viking games, torchlight processions, mock battles and gorse fires on the beach. Fully narrated and accompanied by stirring and emotive music, Oie Voaldyn culminates in a spellbinding Fire Show, signing off with a spectacular fireworks display at the end of the evening – against the stunning backdrop of Peel Castle and bay.    

Why fire, you may ask? Well, the use of fire was actually one of a number of customs used at this time of year, to fend off witches and evil spirits.

The Festival is embraced by the local community and attracts thousands of visitors to Peel.

For those who have an appreciation of old Manx customs, this event is highly recommended and well worth a visit.

If you are planning on travelling to the Island to attend, we would suggest booking early as local accommodation does book up fast.
