Welcome to 2018: It’s time to celebrate our connection to the Isle of Man!

We live in a special place; an environment delivering on benefits to our health, our well-being, and our quality of life. With naturally beautiful amenities on the doorstep – this year, we’re committed to getting out and about, as we toast the Island’s culture as a nation; joining together as one; proud of our identity, and our long history.

There’s always a good time to start shouting about the amazing things people here can achieve, and bolstering that work by supporting initiatives that help improve our everyday lives.

What is it? 


"It's not always sunny but there's still so much to do"

"You don't have to go far to get some peace and quiet"

"Just because we're small doesn't mean there's nothing to do"

In just 14 by 32 miles, we’re blessed with a profusion of glens, beaches, plantations, footpaths, and heritage sites – there’s a lot to see, so let’s get out there!

We know it’s often hard to find the time to explore, but why not make 2018 the year that you discover something new to love about living here?

Do More

Kayaking, fell running, mountain and hill climbing, rambling, yoga, and more…

We challenge you to walk that active wear through the front door, kids in tow, and show them all the beautiful places you know!

Whether it be setting up a new event, or running a project - 2018 is all about showcasing everything that the Isle of Man has to offer.


Year of Our Island is all about celebrating our Island and our connection to it. We want to encourage our community to explore more of the Isle of Man and get more involved in the vast number of activities which are happening on our doorstep.

Whether you are thinking of running an event or just want to find a new hobby in 2018, our team is here to help you make the most of our Island this year.

The real question is, what do you want to do?

If you need help to get an event off the ground or simply want to enhance something that's already happening you may wish to consider applying for funding through the 2018 Year of Our Island project.
