Hop Tu Naa Festival

Type:Hop tu Naa/Bonfire Night

Hop Tu Naa Festival

About

Celebrate our unique Manx Hop Tu Naa traditions at our wholesome, family friendly home grown event at Cregneash.

Hop tu Naa was traditionally considered to be the beginning of the Celtic new year and the start of winter.

During this time in October Cregneash Village comes alive with cellis, 'Turn up for Tunrnips' lantern carving and the big annual Traditional Hop tu Naa event which showcases unique folk traditions and superstitions, seasonal cookery demostrations, music and dancing and the opportunity to sample local produce.

At this big event we celebrate a person called Jinny the Witch, synonymous with the songs Manx children still sing today. Children will love participating in the sport of turnip bowling, enjoy face painting, storytelling, herbal charms, crafts and more. A grand turnip lantern parade is led by the musicians through the village, a great way to end the day’s festivities.
