Stormbreaker Competition Winners Announced 1 May 2007

The blockbuster film Stormbreaker, filmed in the Isle of Man, was released on DVD during November last year and the Department of Tourism and Leisure invited visitors and locals to celebrate by using a free trail map to explore the film locations around the Island.

Children were invited to go on their own secret mission, like Alex Rider in the film, to crack the clues to eight questions featured on the map for a chance to win one of six Nintendo DS and Stormbreaker games.

Out of hundreds of entries, the six lucky winners to be picked out of the draw by Geoff Le Page, Isle of Man Director of Tourism, are as follows:

Kathryn Ostrowski, Bradford-on-Avon

Matthew Oakey, Alvescot, Oxon

Drew Buxton, Glen Vine, Isle of Man

Amy Page, Swadlincote,

Derbyshire Luke Nelson, Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire

Jamie Faragher, Farmhill, Douglas

Geoff Le Page said:

‘This has been a great opportunity for youngsters to venture out and explore the locations in Stormbreaker. I would like to thank all those who entered the competition. Unfortunately there could only be a few winners but hopefully everyone had great fun and discovered lots of new places on their travels round the Island.’

For information on attractions, activities and events call in to the new Isle of Man Welcome Centre at the Sea Terminal in Douglas, where the friendly team will be only too pleased to help you, or go online to www.visitisleofman.com
