House of Manannan Half-Term Quiz - Winners are Announced 15 March 2006

    Children visiting the House of Manannan during February half-term were treated to Manx National Heritage’s Maritime quiz, with prizes from a treasure-chest lucky dip on offer for all participants. During course of the week there were 316 entries, as children were kept busy hunting for clues throughout the House of Manannan galleries.

    The prize draw was made at the House of Manannan by Nick Corkill, Western Area Site Manager. The lucky winner from the age 5 to 10 category was Laurence Couch, aged 7, from Port Erin and the winner of the 11 to 15 category was Katie Christian, aged 11, from Ramsey. Laurence and Katie both received Nautical-themed goodies from the Manx Museum shop, along with a Manx National Heritage Family 4-Site Pass so that they and their families can enjoy free access to four Manx National Heritage sites during the summer season.

    Nick Corkill said:

    “The Maritime quiz was highly successful and attracted many children to the House of Manannan over the half-term. For parents, it provided a fun activity to keep the children entertained over the holidays and we were impressed with the enthusiasm of the children”.

    The half-term quiz was the first in a series of school holiday activities which will run at the House of Manannan this year and the next activity is due to take place at Easter; details are to follow, so keep a look out and be in with a chance to win the next round of prizes on offer.

    The House of Manannan is part of the award winning Story of Mann and is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. Normal admission prices apply. Last recommended admission at 3.30pm.
